• Road conditions are getting worse every day, it’s estimated that Michigan is losing $3 million dollars a day in the value of our road system.
  • A lack of adequate funding limits the amount of roads and bridges we can build and repair each year.
  • For the past few years MDOT hasn’t even had enough money budgeted to match federal aid.
    • But even matching federal aid won’t be enough to reverse the decline of Michigan’s road system
      • $1 billion/year, starting now = $10 billion invested/90% good roads
      • Waiting 10 years to increase investment = $26 billion to bring roads back to 90% good
      • If we don’t fix our roads now, we’ll pay a lot more later.
