NBC 25: Michigan roads are getting worse. What should the state do to fix them?

The Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council (TAMC) says Michigan’s roads are continually getting worse.

According to a report based on a 2010 investigation, the roads are worse now than seven years ago.  It shows that, “35 percent of federal aid roads, roads that qualify for federal transportation dollars, are in poor condition.

Additionally, 46 percent of non-federal aid roads or almost half, which are typically residential streets or lightly traveled county roads, are in poor condition.

“Once roads fall into poor condition, it costs five to six times more to fix them,” said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of the Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association (MITA). “… The current funding levels will only result in the rapid worsening of Michigan’s transportation system.”
