MDOT recognizes the importance of freight mobility in the movement of goods, products and services across Michigan. A safe, efficient and well-maintained transportation network supports cost-effective freight movement, economic development and an improved quality of life.
The Michigan Mobility 2045 Plan is the first of its kind to incorporate not only an overall vision of the state's transportation system, but also incorporate two federally required documents: the State Rail Plan and the State Freight Plan. Combined, these three documents provide a streamlined vision of Michigan's transportation future across all modes.
Under the Michigan Mobility 2045 Plan, updated rail and freight plans are integrated into the state long-range transportation plan to support a holistic approach to Michigan's transportation planning.
