Help shape the future of MDOT’s Hydraulics Program

MDOT’s Local Agency Program (LAP) is seeking volunteers to provide feedback on changes coming to the Hydraulic Program!

Volunteers will assist LAP by reviewing updated policies, guidance and other miscellaneous tasks as MDOT responds to recommendations made by the Federal Highway Administration in its review of the MDOT Hydraulics Program.

This effort will span the next year or two. However, the time commitment shouldn’t be extensive since this is to review draft documents as they are produced.

Contact Tracie Leix, PE, LAP engineer-manager, at [email protected] with questions or to express interest in participating.

John LaMacchia is the Assistant Director of State and Federal Affairs for the League handling transportation, infrastructure, energy and environment issues. He can be reached at [email protected] or 517-908-0303.
