looking to the federal government to help it repair its run-down
roads, The Detroit News reported March 13.
to a report from The Road Information Program, a national transportation
research group, Michigan ranks No. 5 among states for interstates
in poor condition and No. 1 for interstate bridges in bad repair.
Members of the state’s congressional
delegation told the paper they would even consider higher federal
fuel taxes if it were necessary to get money for the state’s roads.
