“To aid our region’s leaders in making decisions to improve Southeast Michigan’s transportation system, it is essential to receive input and perspectives as diverse as our region,” said Kathleen Lomako, Executive Director, SEMCOG.

Input from these meetings will be used to help shape priorities for the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan. This plan, to be adopted in 2019, will describe how billions of dollars will be invested in the region’s transportation infrastructure and operations. As the transportation needs of the region evolve with changes in population and demographics, travel and lifestyle preferences, the economy, and technology, particular emphasis will be placed on:

  • Walking and biking
  • Traffic safety
  • Pavement condition
  • Transit
  • Environmental quality
  • Traffic congestion and operations
  • Freight and border crossings

Accommodations can be made for persons with disabilities and limited English-speaking ability. Please email or call 313.580.6195 to indicate needs.

An online survey tool also provides opportunities to identify travel issues, rate approaches to improving the system, and rank overall priorities. This survey tool is available in English, Spanish, and Arabic.
