  • MDOT is working to create a better, safer roadway for all users by providing a variety of services and information supporting walking and bicycling, including:
    - Training for engineers and planners
    - Educational and safety videos and publications
    - Road and trail bicycle maps to view, order or print
    - U.S. Bicycle Routes 10, 20 and 35 information
    - State and national parks information for bicyclists
