Drivers in need of non-emergency assistance will be tended to by MDOT’s courtesy patrol, which will be dispatched through the Washtenaw County Metro Dispatch.
Services will be provided during peak travel times on weekdays and weekends, including during special events, according to an MDOT announcement.
MDOT operates a similar patrol service throughout metro Detroit. MDOT established its courtesy patrols in 1994. Its fleet of service vans includes 24 vans and 24 drivers.
The service is funded through a grant from the Federal Highway Administration, as well as sponsors including the Michigan State Police and the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments.
