MDOT Traffic and Construction Map
The Michigan Department of
Transportation (MDOT) has posted the 2016 Paving the Way state construction map
online for motorists to download. In an effort to be an even more
environmentally friendly state agency, and to save taxpayer dollars, MDOT is no
longer printing the map for distribution. Instead, motorists are encouraged to
download the map and print it at home or at their nearest library or print
service provider. The map is available at www.michigan.gov/mdotmaps.
MDOT reminds motorists that
state construction information is always available on the Mi Drive traffic
website: www.michigan.gov/drive, as well as the Mi Drive mobile app,
available on iTunes and Google Play. The map will also be on display in all rest
areas and Welcome Centers as in years past.
