Public Involvement Road Map
Five-Year Transportation Program (5YTP)
The Five-Year Transportation Program (5YTP) is a state-required document that presents a high-level overview of planned investments in transportation programs and projects over a five-year period. The 5YTP covers all components of the transportation network for which MDOT is responsible, including highways, bridges, bus, rail, aviation, marine, and nonmotorized transportation.
State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)
The State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is a federally mandated four-year planning document. The STIP lists road, bridge, and transit projects the state intends to fund with federal aid provided under the Federal Aid Transportation Program. The primary purpose the STIP is to provide information regarding the programs and projects to which state and local transportation agencies have committed resources over the next four years. It verifies that transportation revenues are available and sufficient to finance these improvements.
State Long-Range Transportation Plan
The State Long-Range Transportation Plan, is a 25-year plan for transforming Michigan's transportation system. MDOT has begun development of a new plan to replace the existing plan, known as the MI Transportation Plan. The plan is the first of its kind to incorporate not only an overall vision of the state's transportation system, but to include two additional federally required documents: the State Rail Plan and State Freight Plan. These documents combined will provide a streamlined vision of the transportation future in Michigan across all modes.
