The Michigan Department of Transportation Southwest Region is holding informational open houses at each of its three Transportation Service Centers this week.
MDOT’s Nick Schirripa said TSC staff will be present at each location to discuss project selection, transportation funding, construction projects and other issues.
Whether it’s highway and bridge conditions, project types, traffic signals and speed limits, snow removal or clearing crashes and debris, there is more to MDOT’s daily workload than patching potholes, Schirripa said.
Each TSC serves three counties in southwestern Michigan; the Kalamazoo TSC serves Allegan, Kalamazoo and St. Joseph counties.
The open houses are 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Kalamazoo Region’s center is located at 5372 S. 9th St., Kalamazoo.
