July 24, 2017 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is seeking public comment on its draft 2018-2022 Five-Year Transportation Program. The draft document, which is updated annually, includes information about MDOT's mobility initiatives, revenues and a list of specific transportation projects planned for the next five years in each of MDOT's seven regions. You can view the location, description and proposed construction year for upcoming projects on an interactive map available online at www.michigan.gov/mdot5yearplan.

The Five-Year Transportation Program, a continuous, interactive dialogue with the users of the state transportation system, anchors MDOT's project development. The integrated multi-modal program emphasizes system preservation and safety, and carries out the goals and policies outlined by the State Transportation Commission (STC). In addition to providing a list of MDOT-managed road and bridge projects, the document addresses investment strategies, funding assumptions, and economic benefits for all modes of transportation in Michigan, including highways, public transit, rail, air, marine and nonmotorized transportation.

MDOT presented the draft 2018-2022 Five-Year Transportation Program to the STC on July 20, 2017. It will remain a draft program until it receives final approval by the STC, expected on Sept. 21, 2017. The full document is available on the MDOT website at https://goo.gl/MYhbn3.

Comments will be accepted now through Aug. 25, 2017, via an online form on the MDOT website: https://goo.gl/8JzR6q. Comments also can be e-mailed to mdot-five-year-program@michigan.gov.
