SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, is seeking input from Southeast Michigan residents to aid development of the region’s long-range transportation plan. An online tool provides opportunities to identify travel issues, rate approaches to improving the system, and rank overall priorities.
Results of this survey 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
- Environmental quality
- Traffic congestion and operations
- Freight and border crossings
