MDOT Wants “Road Watchers” To Report On Highway Weather

Road Watchers

The Michigan Department of Transportation is looking for “Road Watchers” to help them stay on top of winter weather conditions on their highways in the northern Lower Peninsula.

MDOT hopes that the Road Watcher program will give them a better idea of how well they are maintaining their roads during winter months. The Road Watchers will fill out periodic surveys to give MDOT feedback. The surveys are done on a totally voluntary basis.

The program will focus on the following routes:

  • M-72 from Kalkaska to Acme in Kalkaska and Grand Traverse counties
  • US-131 from Manton to Kalkaska in Wexford, Grand Traverse, and Kalkaska counties
  • US-131 from Mancelona to Petoskey in Antrim, Charlevoix, and Emmet counties
  • US-23 from Greenbush to Lake Boulevard in Alcona and Alpena counties
