Walk Bike Drive Safe
Pedestrians and bicyclists are much more likely to suffer an injury or fatality in a traffic crash than drivers. In fact, while pedestrian and bicycle crashes make up approximately one percent of all traffic crashes, they account for 30 percent of all traffic fatalities in 
Southeast Michigan.  With the increased interest in walking and biking across the region, it is everyone’s responsibility to keep our streets safe for all users, especially those most vulnerable.

  • MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S REALITY CHECK

There are many common myths and misconceptions about transportation in Michigan, from why MDOT replaces "perfectly good" signs to why current funding levels aren't enough to keep roads and bridges in good condition. Please click Transportation Reality Check for all of MDOT's myths and realities.


Summary: Deficient roadways cost Detroit area drivers $1,600 annually, Lansing area drivers $1,032 annually, and Grand Rapids area drivers $1,027 annually for a total of $7.7 billion statewide.  Costs will rise and transportation woes will worsen without a significant funding boost. 

 

STREAMLINING THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS IN MONROE COUNTY

DEVELOPERS STREAMLINING GUIDE

To better serve the development community the Monroe County Economic Development Corporation has facilitated the creation of a guide that will “streamline the development processes” within Monroe County thus saving precious time, money and effort in getting projects up and running in the shortest possible time in our communities.

 
 
This Streamlining Guide is a partnership between all the county agencies (including the Monroe County Road Commission), authorities, municipalities and others that may become involved with the planning, permitting, construction and assistance in project developments here in Monroe County.

A recent development which was an outgrowth of the original publication of this document is the adoption of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Monroe County Road Commission and the Monroe County Drain Commission. This agreement was specifically designed to streamline and speed up the review of development proposals by these agencies.
