Nebraska DOT Announces Syslo as New Deputy Director

LINCOLN, NE — The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) announces Mick Syslo as its new Deputy Director of Operations.

Syslo succeeds Moe Jamshidi, who will retire at the end of March 2024. Jamshidi has served as the Deputy Director of Operations for the past 13 years, with over 40 total years of state service at NDOT.

Syslo, a licensed Professional Engineer, has worked at NDOT in a variety of capacities, including the past 29 years in Roadway Design and Materials & Research, where he served as the State Roadway Design Engineer and State Materials & Research Engineer, respectively. He started with NDOT in 1994 as an engineering intern, and after earning his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from UNL in 1996, Syslo began his full-time career at NDOT.

“Mick’s three decades of experience in multiple areas of NDOT make him uniquely qualified to step into an executive leadership role and help guide the agency forward,” said Vicki Kramer, Director of NDOT. “I look forward to having his expertise and experience at the table, as NDOT continues to innovate the way we deliver our annual construction program and plan for the future of our state’s infrastructure system.”

As Deputy Director of Operations, Syslo will oversee NDOT’s annual construction program and maintenance functions in all eight NDOT districts, as well as the Materials & Research, Operations, Business Technology, and Human Resource Divisions. Syslo will assume this role on March 30, 2024.
