The roads are thawing and the potholes are forming, leaving drivers on a bumpy ride across Mid-Michigan.

Pothole complaints are rising every year, not only in Lansing, but across the state, as Michigan's infrastructure continues to breakdown.

Lansing Public Service managers say potholes are addressed by complaints.

Ingham County prioritizes repairs the same way, while paying special attention heavily traveled corridors.

Large gaps are forming on streets like Mount Hope and Martin Luther King Blvd in the city limits, leaving a lot of drivers frustrated with car repairs.

“The holes that we do have are now big and they're turning into craters which is causing a lot of damage on your front-end and it's a big issue”, said driver Arlela Young.

A big makeover is on the way for the crater-ridden drive on Mount Hope.

New pavement will be laid this year east of Aureilius.

The street will also be resurfaced from MLK to Rundle.

The Ingham County Road Department will have crews out patching up potholes Saturday.
