                                                                         REPORTED FROM COMMITTEE










Senate Bill 943 (Substitute S-1 as reported)

Sponsor:  Senator Mark Huizenga

Committee:  Transportation and Infrastructure




The bill would amend the Michigan Vehicle Code to modify the definition of "work zone". The modified definition specifies that it would include a portion of a street or highway open to vehicular traffic and adjacent to a barrier, berm, lane, or shoulder of a street or a highway within which construction, maintenance, public utility work, reconstruction, repair, resurfacing, or surveying is being conducted by one or more individuals and that met certain criteria, instead of only a portion of a street or highway that met that criteria. In addition, the modified definition would include the use of equipment to signify a work zone, instead of the use of a vehicle for that purpose.
