PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - President Obama plans to nominate Maine native Greg Nadeau to lead the Federal Highway Administration.

Nadeau, who is from Lewiston, is currently deputy administrator of the agency.

In Maine, he served as the state Department of Transportation’s deputy commissioner for policy, planning and communication under the Gov. John Baldacci’s administration. He also was the senior policy adviser to then-Gov. Angus King from 1995 to 2002.

King says Nadeau is an experienced and thoughtful leader who will be a champion for improving and strengthening America’s highway system. Sen. Susan Collins says she’s worked with Nadeau closely on several projects benefiting Maine’s transportation priorities. She says the nomination is “well earned recognition of Greg’s expertise in transportation policy.”
