The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has announced their annual state highway construction map is now available.

The free map is updated each year to help motorists locate major MDOT road and bridge projects across the state.

State Transportation Director Kirk Steudle said "MDOT publishes this map to prepare Michigan motorists for the construction season ahead. It's a good time to also remind everyone to slow down and pay attention when driving through work zones. If you see orange, slow down. That way you'll keep yourself and your passengers, construction workers and other motorists safe."

You can download a PDF of the 2013 map from the Maps and Publications section of the MDOT website. Physical copies are available at all MDOT Transportation Service Centers and Welcome Centers. You can also request one by calling (517) 335-3084.
