Michigan Roads are Getting Worse
According to WILX-News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, Michigan's business leaders say the state's legislation is running out of time to fix the roads.
The President and CEO of the Michigan chamber of Commerce said, we're encouraging and supporting lawmakers to do the right thing and we're going to stand with them when they do that. Those that don't will have a lot of explaining to do to motorists who are tired of bad roads.
Michigan's roads have gotten worse over time and the state is falling behind trying to fix them. More roads are falling from good to fair and from fair to poor.
And even the one point two billion dollar road funding package signed by then governor Rick Snyder in 2015 won't be enough to reverse that trend.
The governor has stated that the price is about $2.5 billion today. In a few years, that will be $3.5 billion. It's really a situation of pay me now, or pay me much more later. If they don't get the money now, those costs will continue to increase.
