March 28, 2012 -- The annual state highway construction map is now available from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). The free map is updated each year to help motorists locate major MDOT road and bridge projects across the state.

The 2012 print edition of "Paving the Way" will be available at all MDOT Transportation Service Centers and region offices, as well as at all Welcome Centers. Welcome Centers in Michigan's Upper Peninsula will have maps available starting in early May. The map also is available for viewing at state rest areas. Information on the map is current at the time of printing.

"This annual map gives Michigan motorists a big picture view of major construction projects on state routes," said State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle. "It's also a time to remind everyone to slow down and pay attention when driving through a work zone. Protect yourself and your passengers as well as construction workers."

The map also details construction on state routes in Detroit and Grand Rapids, providing maps specific to these areas of the state. You can download a copy of the 2012 map from the "Maps and Publications" section of the MDOT Web site.

Motorists also can get real-time information about planned and unplanned lane closures on the MDOT Mi Drive traffic data Web site, along with camera images of major state routes in Detroit, Grand Rapids and the U.P., rates of speed and incidents on Grand Rapids and Detroit-area freeways, and statewide weather and carpool lot information. You can access Mi Drive from your computer, smartphone or mobile device at: www.michigan.gov/drive.

To request copies of the printed 2012 map, contact the MDOT Office of Communications at 517-335-3084 or send an e-mail to mdotwebinfo@michigan.gov with your name and address.
