New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan plans to nominate a Massachusetts transportation official to become commissioner of the same agency in her state.
Hassan announced Wednesday that she will nominate Victoria Sheehan to lead New Hampshire's Department of Transportation.
Sheehan, who lives in Nashua, currently serves as manager of strategic planning and highway performance at the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, where she coordinates the highway division's five-year, $5 billion capital plan and $600 million annual operating budget. She was the top choice of a search committee.
Hassan will nominate Sheehan at the Aug. 26 Executive Council meeting. If confirmed, she will replace Chris Clement, who left the job in December for a position with the University of New Hampshire.
