"The yearly construction map is an excellent snapshot showing the extensive work MDOT has planned for the year to improve the state's roads and bridges," said State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle. "It's also a useful tool to help drivers prepare for work zones along their planned route. Please remember to slow down in construction zones and avoid all distractions. The workers you're trusting to fix the roads are trusting you with their lives. Drive safely and responsibly in their work area. We want everyone to make it home each and every night."
