Among her current responsibilities, Johnson is coordinating with the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority and Cook County on a long-awaited full interchange at Roselle Road and a crucial new partial interchange at Meacham Road.
She and her husband plan on traveling for the next few years before settling down in their retirement.
In a statement released Thursday, Johnson wrote, "While I am looking ahead to spending time with my husband and traveling, it is never easy to leave somewhere that has felt like home for 20 years. I thank the village for the many opportunities that I have had here and will miss the many friendships that have made at the village. I am proud of the work I have accomplished and the people that I have worked alongside of in the community."
Schaumburg has begun the recruitment process for a new director of transportation. The search expected to take three to four months.
