MDOT's 2014 statewide construction map availableThe annual state highway construction map is now available from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). The free map is updated each year to help motorists locate major MDOT road and bridge projects across the state.
Learn about the 96fixThe 96fix is a project to rebuild 7 miles of I-96 between Newburgh and Telegraph roads in Livonia and Redford Township. The project also includes repairs to 37 overpasses and upgrades to freeway drainage, lighting, signs and landscaping.
Use MDOT's Report a Pothole form or call 888-296-4546 to report potholes on state roads. Most state roads begin with M, I or US designations (e.g., I-75, M-28, US-23, etc.). Include specific information about the location. Your report will be forwarded to the appropriate MDOT region staff for action.
For everyone’s safety, please remember to slow down near pothole crews.
Rest Areas/Welcome CentersMDOT operates and maintains 79 rest areas, including 14 welcome centers, along major freeways and roadways for the convenience of the traveling public. Rest areas provide modern restrooms, telephones, picnic areas, pet exercise zones, paved parking areas, and fresh drinking water.
