5 Michigan cities get 'poor' marks for the quality of their roads
A new report ranks several Michigan cities as having some of the worst roads in the nation.
Detroit, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Flint and Lansing all have a high percentage of their roads in “poor” condition.
That’s according to a new report from, TRIP, a national transportation research group, funded by businesses and unions tied to road construction.
The report claims more than half the roads in Detroit, Flint and Grand Rapids give motorists a “rough ride”.
The findings shouldn’t be a surprise. Earlier this year, TRIP ranked Michigan among the states with the worst roads.
The report recommends cities do a better job of maintaining good roads and patching potholes and says more federal funding is needed for local road repair.
