Transportation Operations Center (TOC)

  • Transportation Operations Centers (TOCs) are seven-day-a-week operation centers that house dispatchers from both MDOT and Michigan State Police allowing both agencies to share resources and information in order to effectively monitor traffic and manage traffic incident responses on Metro Detroit, West Michigan, and Mid-Michigan freeways. This is achieved by monitoring traffic sensors, distress calls and video feeds from closed-circuit TV cameras, while coordinating with law enforcement agencies and other transportation officials.

    MDOT’s three TOCs are focused advancing the mission on improving safety, mobility, and economy for residents and business, by ensuring safe, smooth, and efficient roads.
