MDOT Revising Long-Range Plan, Seeking Comments on Public Involvement Plan‏

The Michigan Department  of Transportation (MDOT) is seeking comments by Monday, April 30, 2012, on a public  involvement plan for revising the state’s long-range transportation plan. The  public involvement plan describes various opportunities the public will have  over the next six months to help shape the revisions; it is available online at or in printed form  by request.

MDOT is revising the  state’s long-range transportation plan, MI  Transportation Plan: Moving Michigan Forward, in order to maintain  the 20-year planning horizon required by federal transportation planning  regulations. Since reauthorization of the federal highway program could change  the requirements, and since such legislation is still pending in Congress, the  revision will be an interim step to keep the plan current. A full update will be  scheduled at a future time in response to any new requirements that may result  from federal reauthorization.
