MDOT FY 2020 Transportation Program Announced

The State Transportation Commission’s approval of the MDOT 2020-2024 Five-Year Transportation Program at their October meeting served as MDOT’s formal announcement that they will invest $2.3 billion in their FY 2020 Transportation Program. The focus of the FY 2020 capital investments will be preservation of the transportation system, safe mobility for motorists, and efficient system operations. The multimodal FY 2020 program will invest $140.3 million in the Aviation Program, $346.5 million in the Bus and Marine Programs, $110.5 million in the Rail and Port Programs, and $1.7 billion in the Highway Program.

The FY 2020 Transportation Program investments are a vital part of Michigan’s continued economic growth and are estimated to support 30,900 jobs.

The FY 2020 Highway Program includes approximately $195 million for trunkline modernization, approximately $190 million for bridge preservation activities, and approximately $549 million for roadway preservation activities.  MDOT has allocated $416 million to fund routine maintenance (snowplowing, mowing, etc.) performed by the Department, approximately $230 million for safety and systems operations, with the balance of the investments going to fund preliminary engineering (project scoping/design), construction engineering, right-of-way acquisition, and other miscellaneous programs.

The MDOT estimates for their FY 2020 Repair and Rebuild Roads Program (roadway preservation) include approximately: 500 lane miles of reconstruction and rehabilitation, 1,500 lane miles of capital preventive maintenance, and 400 lane miles of freeway and non-freeway resurfacing.

MDOT is projecting that approximately $1.19 billion in road and bridge projects will be let in FY 2020.

To keep you abreast of their planned lettings, MDOT has provided several documents pertaining to the FY 2020 Highway Program. MDOT has committed to updating these documents monthly as they are subject to change due to, but not limited to: project delivery commitments, project estimate variability, obligation authority growth, and advanced construction strategies.
