HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania’s governor is turning to an engineer who’s served most recently as a top PennDOT administrator to be the agency’s next transportation secretary.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday announced his choice of Transportation Department Executive Deputy Secretary Yassmin Gramian to take over from outgoing Secretary Leslie Richards.

Richards is leaving to become general manager of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority public transit agency.

Gramian has spent decades as a project engineer, including several high-profile works in the Philadelphia area. She’s scheduled to assume the top duties on Dec. 6.
