The Federal Highway Administration-Michigan Division is located in Lansing, Michigan, the state capital and heart of the lower-peninsula. Michigan is a geographically large and diverse state consisting of large urbanized areas in the southern portion to very remote and rural areas in the northern lower-peninsula and the upper-peninsula. In 2015, Michigan had the 8th largest population in the United States with the vast majority residing in the lower peninsula. The Division Office is located within two blocks of our primary customer, the Michigan Department of Transportation and within a 2-3 hour drive of most of the major Metropolitan Planning Organizations it regularly serves.
Michigan’s transportation network is vital not only to the citizens of Michigan, but also to the nation and the world. Canada has long been a top trading partner for the United States, accounting for about $670 billion of the United States’ total trade in 2015. The Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel in Detroit, the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron, and the International Bridge in Sault Ste. Marie are the State’s major border crossings into Canada.
The Division Office is structured in three teams: Executive Coordination Unit (ECU),Engineering and Operations (E&O), and Program Development Unit (PDU). The ECU team manages the financial and civil rights programs, as well as providing internal customer service and support. The E&O team delivers the Federal-aid highway program through project level oversight, as well as program level oversight of bridge, pavement and materials, design, major projects, emergency relief, etc. The PDU team is responsible for oversight and advancement of the planning, air quality, safety, right-of-way, environmental, Intelligent Transportation Systems, and operations.
