INDOT staffer in ethics case seeks new work

Indianapolis — A top Indiana transportation official under investigation for land sales that benefited his family is considering taking an executive job at an engineering firm that bids for state work.

Indiana Department of Transportation Chief of Staff Troy Woodruff is seeking a formal opinion from the State Ethics Commission on whether he can work at transportation contractor RQAW.

Woodruff is under investigation for land along the Interstate 69 corridor that he and his family sold to the state. Gov. Mike Pence asked for the investigation last year shortly after the Indianapolis Star uncovered the Woodruff family's stake in the sales.

Inspector General David Thomas declined comment Monday on the status of the investigation. INDOT spokesman Will Wingfield also declined comment, saying INDOT would wait until Thursday's hearing.
