The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has a new link on the MDOT website that demonstrates the process involved in building state highways (M, I and U.S. roads). The"Plans to Pavement" page is available as a quick link on the right-hand side of the "Roads and Travel" page on the MDOT website at www.michigan.gov/mdot. The link provides users with information, photos, videos and a glossary of road construction terms.
State Transportation Director Gloria J. Jeff noted that the "Plans to Pavement" page is the latest addition to the MDOT website. It joins the popular "Lane Closure Report," "Director's Pothole Hotline," "Projects Under Construction" and "Highways and Local Names" features that already appear on the MDOT website.
"We created this guide to help the public better understand the process that goes into building a road," said Jeff. "We will keep adding user-friendly information like this to the MDOT website to keep it relevant for Michigan motorists."
