LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Department of Transportation is seeking public input as it develops a 25-year plan for the state.

The “Michigan Mobility 2045” plan will seek to establish priorities for transportation. The development phase of the plan runs through April.

As part of MDOT’s efforts, telephone town hall meetings will allow the agency to randomly dial as many as 10,000 landline phones per session and offer the public an opportunity to join a conference call, ask questions and express opinions. A survey and other efforts also will take place.

MDOT says it wants to get opinions from “a large and diverse group of Michigan residents and stakeholders.” A draft plan will eventually be released for comment and review.
