MDOT seeking public comment on transportation planning process

Lansing — The Michigan Department of transportation (MDOT) is seeking public comment on its Public Participation plan through Jan. 31, 2013. 

"The public plays an important role in shaping Michigan's transportation system," said State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle in a Dec. 17 press release. "Two-way communications can help raise awareness on important issues and lead to plans that best meet the ongoing transportation needs of the state. Early and continuous public involvement is critical to this process."

MDOT has posted a document on its website called 2014-2017 State Transportation Improvement Plan Draft Public Participation Plan and can be found at www.michigan.gov/stip.

The document outlines MDOT's work on the Five-Year Transportation Program as well as other documents required by federal administrators. 

Comments can be e-mailed to parsonsb@michigan.gov or mailed to:

Bob Parsons, Public Involvement and Hearings Officer, Bureau of Highway Development, Michigan Dept. of Transportation, P.O. Box 30050, Lansing, MI, 48909  

Comments received may be considered for incorporation into the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
