Vogel Named Kansas DOT Chief of Maintenance

TOPEKA, KS — A familiar face is back to the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) as Jaci Vogel has been named the Bureau Chief of Maintenance. She replaces Clay Adams, who was named KDOT Director of Field Operations.

Vogel started at KDOT in 1989 in KDOT’s Transportation Planning, then transferred to Construction and Maintenance (later named Construction and Materials) and held several positions in the maintenance area. In 2007, she was promoted to the District One Maintenance Engineer where she served for 10 years. Vogel left KDOT in 2017 to become the Deputy Director of Public Works - Operations for the City of Topeka.

When the Bureau of Maintenance position became available, she took the opportunity to return.

“It’s an honor and exciting coming back to KDOT, which has been the majority of my career,” she said. “I look forward to assisting the agency maintain the highway infrastructure and provide the necessary resources to the maintenance personnel to do their jobs efficiently and effectively.”

Vogel said she is glad to have returned to KDOT. “Someone sent me an email and said welcome home. It was touching,” she said.
