Access management is a set of proven techniques to improve safety, reduce traffic congestion and assure safe access to properties adjacent to a roadway. CUPPAD assists the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and communities with access management planning.
Access management can help:
An access management plan has been completed for the US-2/US-41/M-35 Corridor within the City of Escanaba and Wells Township. Access Management Team discusses and reviews issues along the Corridor; the team meets on as needed basis.
