Get Involved! Participate in MDOT Decisions
Public participation is integral to efficient, effective and responsive transportation decisions. MDOT values and encourages public involvement throughout its planning processes. From goal setting to prioritizing projects to environmental clearance, the public plays an important role in shaping Michigan's transportation system. Through two-way information sharing, stakeholders and MDOT join together to develop plans that best meet the ongoing transportation needs of the state. The following content and links provide a road map for assuring the public's voice is not only heard, but makes a difference in moving Michigan forward.
