March 7, 2019 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is developing a new state long-range transportation plan (SLRTP), known as Michigan Mobility 2045 (MM 2045), that will establish a vision and priorities for transportation in Michigan for 25 years.

The MDOT Bay Region is hosting two meetings in a series of in-person statewide visioning sessions. Staff will be on hand to gather input Wednesday, March 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hoyt Public Library at 505 Janes Ave. in Saginaw. Michigan residents are encouraged to join the conversation again Thursday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Farmer’s Market at 300 East First St. in Flint.

The visioning session will provide the public and key stakeholders a collaborative context for informing engagement methods and establishing transportation priorities. The public is encouraged to share input on the best methods for outreach to marginalized communities, including environmental justice, Americans with disabilities, and tribal governments.

With advance notice of seven days, accommodations can be made for persons with disabilities and/or limited English-speaking ability, and persons needing auxiliary aids or services of interpreters, signers, readers, or large print. Call 517-335-4381.
