Is traditional public involvement getting old? While transportation matters to residents of all ages, few attend public meetings. That’s why Michigan DOT went online to engage the broader public when it began working on a completely new state long range transportation plan (SLRTP). 

Times are changing. In this webinar, find out how Michigan DOT and WSP joined forces to engage 6,300 people to uncover their evolving transportation priorities for the Michigan Mobility 2045 SLRTP. Join Shane Peck, Anita Richardson, Brad Sharlow, and Kyle Haller as they share what they learned about public preferences for modal tradeoffs, infrastructure investments, intelligent technologies, and transit.

What’s new in public involvement? Attend this complimentary webinar for modern ways to:

- Uncover the transportation priorities of your citizens

- Engage across all age-groups, going beyond the usual suspects

- Gamify transportation education to capture informed public input

- Integrate tech to capture public input at public meetings

- Build resident support and buy-in for meaningful change

Public involvement is integral to the success of the MDOT mission — providing the highest quality integrated transportation services for economic benefit and improved quality of life. Attend this webinar to find out how the MDOT-WSP team was astounded with their online public involvement outcomes.
