New state map is available

The new State of Michigan map is out, featuring Belle Isle on the Detroit River as a state park for the very first time. The Michigan Department of Transportation has posted the 2014 state transportation map online while paper versions of the map will be available free of charge at all Michigan Welcome Centers and M-DOT offices. In addition to the paper map, M-DOT’s interactive mobile site, Mi Drive, features real-time traffic information, camera views, rest area locations and construction information at www.michigan.gov/drive that travelers can use to plan their routes in advance. About 750,000 maps will be printed this year, at a cost of 13 cents per copy. M-DOT has reduced the number of paper maps printed over the years from a high of 2 million maps in 2007, to 1.5 million from 2008 through 2011, to 1 million in 2012, to 750,000 in 2013 and again in 2014.  (MRN)
