Michigan Department of Transportation places emphasis on safety

Transport Truck

LANSING, Mich. – Safety is a top concern at the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).

The MDOT safety initiatives across the Upper Peninsula are part of a larger effort to help move the state Toward Zero Deaths (TZD).

MDOT’s Superior Region is working on many fronts to improve road safety, including truck warning signs, traffic backup detection, roadside delineators, and mumble strips.

Using targeted technology as well as low-cost, system-wide improvements, MDOT projects across the Upper Peninsula this year have been designed to make roads safe.
