The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Michigan Division is located in Lansing, Michigan, in the heart of Michiganâ€™s lower-peninsula and the location of the State Capital. The office is located within two blocks of our primary customer, the Michigan Department of Transportation. Lansing is also within 2-3 hours driving time of most of the major Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) it regularly serves. Michigan is a geographically large and diverse state consisting of large urbanized areas in the southern portion of the state to very remote, rural areas in the northern lower-peninsula and upper-peninsula. Michigan has the 8th largest population in the U.S., the vast majority of which is located in the Lower Peninsula.
Michiganâ€™s transportation network is vital not only to the citizens of Michigan but also the nation and world. Canada has long been a top trading partner for the United States, accounting for nearly 17% of total trade in 2010. The Port of Detroit is the second busiest road entrance into in the United States (only to Laredo, Texas) and the busiest port of entry on the U.S. - Canadian border.
The office is structured in three teams: Executive Coordination Unit (ECU),Engineering and Operations (E&O), and Planning and Program Development(P&PD). The ECU team manages the financial and civil rights programs, as well as providing internal customer service by the Service Team. The E&O teamâ€™s primary responsibility is delivering the Federal-aid highway program through project level oversight, as well as program level oversight, e.g., bridge, pavement and materials, design, environment, Major Projects, emergency relief, etc. The P&PD team is responsible for oversight and advancement of the planning, air quality, safety, right-of-way, ITS and operations programs.
