  Sign up for MDOT North Region Traffic Notifications. Gov Delivery
  • Log into GovDelivery and look under the Construction/Road/Traffic Notices heading
    for the North Region.
  • Choose the counties you want information for (other MDOT regions also have lists available).

Notifications are sent to subscribers when incidents or construction are expected to impact traffic.  Examples include crashes, lane closures, detours, freeway closures, etc.  These e-mails are designed to help motorists make informed travel decisions and decrease delays.  This not only helps increase safety for motorists, construction workers, and emergency personnel but also reduces the potential for secondary crashes due to congestion.  

The subject line of the e-mail notification will be consistent and concise to allow subscribers to quickly decide if the message applies to them.  The body of the e-mail will contain additional incident or construction information.
