The department said Wednesday that Pete Rahn is resigning effective April 23 to take a position with the Kansas City-based engineering firm of HNTB. He has been director of MoDOT since September 2004.

The chairman of the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission issued a statement praising Rahn for showing "innovative and highly effective leadership." The commission plans to name an interim director while undertaking a national search for Rahn's replacement.
