link: Report: Michigan roads among worst in nation 



According to Overdrive Magazine’s “Highway Report Card,” roads in Michigan are the third worst of any state. 


Louisiana earned the dubious distinction of having the worst roads, followed by Pennsylvania and then Michigan. Among the ten worst roads individually, Interstates 75 and 94 in Michigan ranked Nos. 9 and 10, respectively. 


The quality of our roads remains low because our state government’s commitment to our roads remains low,” said Mike Nystrom, vice president of Government and Public Relations for the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association and co-chair of the Michigan Transportation Team. 


“We have the technology and we have the talent to fix our roads, but unfortunately we lack the will. Until the legislature steps up and provides adequate funding to repair our crumbling infrastructure, national groups and publications will keep sending the same message to businesses and job creators across America – stay off Michigan’s roads.”
