MDOT has revised its winter level of service designation for state trunklines. What does this mean to me?
Safety is paramount at MDOT, and we strive to create a safe environment for responsible driving. During a winter event, all available resources will be deployed as usual to maintain state trunklines. The new levels of service address how quickly we clean up after the storm. On Orange routes, we will continue to use overtime to get the full roadway generally bare of ice and snow as quickly as possible. On Blue routes, we will use overtime if needed to make the road safe and passable. You can view Level of Service maps for your region.
