Delaware Transportation Secretary Shailen Bhatt is leaving his post after nearly 4 years to head up the Colorado Department of Transportation.
He will take over the position in mid-February.
Bhatt told the Wilmington News Journal that he wanted to deal with the revenue package for DelDOT before he leaves the agency.
Governor Jack Markell has nominated Jennifer Cohan, head of the Division of Motor Vehicles, to take over the job.
Cohan has managed nearly all of the agency’s divisions when vacancies came up while still running the DMV.
