The primary functions of the Michigan Department of Transportation are the construction, improvement, and maintenance of the state highway system--the 9,700 miles of interstate, U.S. and M-numbered highways. Additional responsibilities include the development and implementation of comprehensive transportation plans for the state, including aeronautics and train and bus transit; the provision of professional and technical assistance; and the administration of state and federal funds allocated for these programs.

The state can reap immediate savings by implementing the following changes, which involve eliminating or reducing unproductive subsidies, and reforming the organizational structure of securing highway infrastructure construction and repair.
