Road Condition Reality Check

MDOT is asking drivers why Ohio's roads are in better condition. The answer it says is not because MDOT doesn't know how to improve the roads in Michigan, it's because Ohio spends a $1 billion more each year than our state.

Road crews in Ingham county Thursday are still under potholes repairs, but soon the permanent summer asphalt will be available.

The thing holding construction back is funding.

MDOT says Michigan spends $60-376 less per capita on transportation each year, than the other Great Lake states.
