2045 Long Range Transportation Plan

MPC Staff is working on developing the County’s next Long Range Transportation Plan. The Federal  Highway Administration requires that the Long Range Transportation Plan be updated every five years. We are working in conjunction with SEMCOG as they develop the Regional Plan for Southeast Michigan. There are many components of the plan and we are looking for your input as we work to develop the plan, please take some time to fill out this survey:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2045TransPlan.  

There will be additional chances for public comment as we develop this plan; as there will be a public hearing after we develop a list of transportation projects submitted by the local municipalities. Stay tuned for more news as we work throughout this year to develop this plan.

If you have any questions in regards to the "2045 Long Range Transportation Plan", please call (810) 989-6950 or Email.
