The Michigan State Transportation Commission (STC) on Nov. 9 approved the final version of the Michigan Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) 2024-2028 Five-Year Transportation Program (5YTP) for posting on the agency’s website and transmission to the Michigan Legislature State Budget Director, and the House and Senate fiscal agencies by March 1, 2024.

According to STC, MDOT’s 5YTP (download below) contains a list of planned projects for the MDOT Highway Program (state-maintained roads, bridges, and facilities), as well as information on the Public Transportation, Rail and Aeronautics programs.

The document, which received public and stakeholder input between Aug. 7 and Sept. 9, 2023, “helps connect MDOT’s long-range goals and strategies for asset management with project programming and monitoring of performance measures and budget targets,” STC said.

Highlights of this year’s 5YTP include:

  • $15.8 billion in anticipated state and federally funded investments, with $4.7 billion in multimodal programs, covering MDOT Public Transportation (bus, marine, rail and ports) at $3.7 billion, and Aeronautics at $989 million; and $11.2 billion in Highway Program projects focused primarily on repairing and rebuilding MDOT roads and bridges, with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s $3.5 billion Rebuilding Michigan program contributing more than $592 million to that total.
  • Highlights on Highway, Public Transportation, and Aeronautics program projects contributing to MDOT’s focus on equity and inclusion, transportation resiliency, and pedestrian and bicycle improvements.
  • A summary of public comments received during the comment period.
