INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The head of the Indiana Department of Transportation is leaving that position and being replaced by one of the agency’s deputy commissioners.

The governor’s office announced Wednesday that Gov. Mike Pence had accepted Karl Browning’s resignation as INDOT commissioner after nearly two years into his second stint leading the highway department. A Pence spokeswoman declined to give a reason for Browning’s resignation.

Pence appointed Brandye Hendrickson as the new commissioner, effective immediately. Hendrickson has been charge of the department’s Greenfield district, which includes Indianapolis.

Hendrickson was INDOT’s interim commissioner before Pence appointed Browning to the position.

Browning was the Hoosier Lottery director after leading INDOT from 2006-2009 under then-Gov. Mitch Daniels.
