PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards has appointed Cheryl Moon-Sirianni as PennDOT's top executive for District 11, which covers Allegheny, Beaver and Lawrence counties.

Moon-Sirianni was one of three officials assigned to the position on an interim, rotating basis in May, when former long-time district executive Dan Cessna announced he was leaving to take a job with the Pittsburgh-based engineering firm Michael Baker International.

“We welcome Cheryl to our district executive ranks,” Richards said in a news release. “Cheryl has served with distinction in a variety of executive roles within the district, and we are confident she will meet and exceed the challenges in delivering the very best in transportation services to the people of Pittsburgh and the surrounding region.”

Moon-Sirianni joined PennDOT in 1987 as a civil engineer trainee, the news release said. She later held the positions of project manager, contract management engineer and assistant district engineer for design.

“I am honored to be selected for this position and excited to carry on the excellent work that has been done by the employees in the past,” Moon-Sirianni said. “I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead and I'm eager to carry on the mission of Secretary Richards by continuing to build and strengthen relationships with our local transportation partners.”

PennDOT owns and maintains 2,570 miles of state highway, 2,804 bridges and four tunnels in District 11, the news release said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
