LANSING, Mich. –  Today, the State Transportation Commission (STC) approved posting the MDOT draft 2023-2027 Five-Year Transportation Program (5YTP) and interactive map to the MDOT website for public comment. MDOT invites public and stakeholder input on the draft document from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31.

The 5YTP contains a list of planned projects for the MDOT Highway Program (state-maintained roads, bridges, and facilities), as well as information on the public transportation, rail, and aeronautics programs. The document helps connect MDOT’s long-range goals and strategies for asset management with project programming and monitoring of performance measures and budget targets. The 5YTP is required to be delivered to the Legislature by March 1 each following calendar year, serves as a foundation for the biennial State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), and aids in the development of the annual state budget.

Highlights of this year’s 5YTP include:

  • $15.5 billion in anticipated state and federally funded investments, with:
    • $11.6 billion in Highway Program projects focused primarily on repairing and rebuilding MDOT roads and bridges, with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s $3.5 billion Rebuilding Michigan program contributing $1.1 billion to that total.
    • $3.9 billion for the Public Transportation Program, covering bus, marine, rail, and aeronautics.
  • A list of Highway Program construction projects planned for funding over the next five years.
  • Highlights on highway, public transportation, and aeronautics program projects contributing to MDOT’s focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion; transportation resiliency; and pedestrian and bicycle improvements.
