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, 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. Shane Peck, Anita Richardson, Brad Sharlow, and Kyle Haller share what they learned about public preferences for modal tradeoffs, infrastructure investments, intelligent technologies, and transit.

What’s new in public involvement? Watch this complimentary on-demand 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.

Comments from previous participants ...

The presentation was really well put together. I really enjoy when a presenter is able to get to the key takeaway first then dive into the specifics of that takeaway. Well done.

Great suggestions for thinking outside the box when it comes to public engagement.

This was a very helpful and insightful presentation. It provided good evidence on the effectiveness of online community engagement.
