Fuller Selected as Kansas DOT Chief of Maintenance

TOPEKA, KS — Robert Fuller has been named the new Bureau Chief of Maintenance for the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). He succeeds Jaci Vogel, who recently retired.

Fuller worked for an engineering firm before coming to KDOT in 1999. He started in the Bureau of Transportation Planning in the Geometrics and Data Unit. Two years later, he went to the Materials and Research Center in the Geotechnical Unit to conduct foundation investigations. In 2007, he was promoted to Administrator of the Maintenance Quality Assurance Program in the Bureau of Construction and Maintenance.

“When I started here, I didn’t expect to make KDOT a career,” Fuller said. “But it wasn’t long before I realized it was a good job with good opportunities.”

In 2013, Maintenance became a separate bureau with Clay Adams as Chief. Three years later, Fuller took over KDOT’s Capital Improvement Program, where he served until now.

This program oversees KDOT-owned buildings and is responsible for the planning of building expansions, new buildings, and overall repairs. “I’ve been proud in our ability to replace Subarea buildings," Fuller said. "That has been a real benefit to field employees."
