FACT: One-third of all fatal and serious traffic crashes are due at least in part to poor road conditions.

Legislative Inaction Costs Michigan Motorists More than $1 Billion Each Year
“Allowing this crisis to go unchecked will put the state in a position where it may never recover, forever relegated to an inferior status in the nation. State leaders must acknowledge the gravity of the road and bridge crisis and provide creative, substantial and sustainable funding to put Michigan back on the road.” – Citizens Advisory Council, July 2008
“At current funding levels, the condition of Michigan’s transportation infrastructure will continue to deteriorate. This alarming decline in condition of Michigan’s infrastructure affects everyone-from businesses that rely on the transportation network to transport goods and services; from tourists visiting or traveling through our great state to our citizens who expect safe and convenient access to work and school. Reinvesting in our transportation system and maintaining these vital public assets are essential to securing a better future for all of Michigan’s citizens.” – Transportation Asset Manangement Council, 2011

Despite comprehensive studies and recommendations that Michigan needs to raise our annual road funding by more than $1.5 billion annually, and warnings from the Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council (TAMC) that our roads are deteriorating faster than they can be repaired or replaced, past legislatures have failed to increase the user fees that fund our roads and bridges.

Road condition data reported to the TAMC by state and local road agencies reveals that Michigan roads are deteriorating at a rate of $3 million daily – more than $1 billion annually. In 2004, the cost of returning all roads to good condition was $3.68 billion. By 2011, TAMC estimated the cost had ballooned to $11.5 billion.

The County Road Association of Michigan, members of the Michigan Transportation Team, and media statewide have called on the legislature to take bold action to improve Michigan’s crumbling roads.

Detailed information is provided below, including maps of road conditions, highlighting the cost of inaction for each legislative district. There are only two solutions, pay now or pay much more later. It’s time to just fix the roads!
