Michigan Roads

By  | 

The quality of Michigan roads and bridges are among the worst in the nation ranking in the bottom third of all the states.

A survey commissioned by the road building industry suggests that Michigan needs to do more to improve our interstate freeway system which is 50 years old this week. A so called TRIP report says thousands of lives have been saved because of the freeway system, but Michigan needs to do more to improve those roads in the future.

That might require a gas tax increase which the industry supports but there is neither the way nor the votes in the legislature to do that during this election year.
