TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Transportation is seeking “Road Watchers” to report on winter highway conditions in the northern Lower Peninsula.

For a third year, MDOT is recruiting people in the northernmost 21 counties in the state’s Lower Peninsula to participate in periodic surveys on conditions during the morning commuting period on some key routes.

Roadways include Michigan highway 72 in Kalkaska and Grand Traverse counties and portions of U.S. 131 in Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet, Kalkaska, Grand Traverse and Wexford counties. They also include U.S. highway 23 in Alcona and Alpena counties.

MDOT compiles the survey results to track winter highway conditions with the goal of improving winter maintenance and response time.

Surveys are done online. “Road Watchers” also are being sought for other parts of the state.
