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.
