"Saginaw County is literally a poster child for the worst roads and bridges across the entire state," said Mike Nystrom, vice president of public and government relations at the Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association. "This isn't a case of road agencies not doing their jobs adequately. Locals are literally starving for more dollars as state policymakers sit on their hands."
Adding insult to injury, Saginaw County received a measly three road projects totaling less than $20 million from the federal stimulus package, while the needs are estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars, if not more.
Nystrom credited state Sen.

“It’s extremely heartening to see that a large majority of the public understands the need for increased investment in our infrastructure,� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA). “Now we need to make sure that any lingering confusion regarding gas taxes is eliminated, so that everyone has a clear understanding of exactly how much it will cost.�
...
Nystrom also said that he hopes to continue working with the Legislature to find a permanent, long-term road funding solution as quickly as possible. “We’ve kicked the proverbial can down the road for years and years and years,� he said. “The condition of our infrastructure is so poor that pretty soon there won’t even be any roads left to kick the can down.�
...
“As of this morning, the cost of legislative inaction on road funding totaled $269 million,� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of MITA. “As each day passes, that figure climbs by $2.7 million, or $1 billion per year. Faced with that cost of delay, Michigan’s legislators must find a way to invest at least $2 billion more annually on roads, or the public will continue to bear the brunt of their inaction. As legislators continue to put off road funding, the cost of repairs will escalate even further. It is a major funding dilemma that will only get worse over time.�
Soon after legislators delayed approving increased transportation investment and went on summer break, Nystrom added, taxpayers in many municipalities went to the polls in August and overwhelmingly approved local ballot initiatives to help pay for better roads.

“While the exact cause of the flooding remains under investigation, it appears that proper investment in sewer infrastructure, which has been delayed in Southeastern Michigan, could have mitigated this crisis,� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association.

“This should be a message to the Michigan Legislature that roads continue to be an issue with their constituents,� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association. “Michigan loses $3 million every day that the Legislature delays taking action on road funding, or $1 billion annually in transportation asset value. The Legislature needs to take bold action to fix this crisis.� Nystrom added that every study that has been done on Michigan’s deteriorating infrastructure points to the fact that the state needs at least an additional $2 billion annually just to maintain our current roads and bridges.

“This report is a stark reminder of what Michigan drivers experience every day â€" potholes and worn out bridges,â€� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of MITA. “Not fixing our deteriorating bridges and roads now will cost Michigan taxpayers more in the long run.

Nystrom added that given the aggregation of state, city and county data in this report, the county-by-county breakdown doesn’t necessarily reflect the effectiveness of any particular local road agency.

“Everyone has been talking about fixing Michigan’s roads, especially in light of this year’s horrendous pothole season,� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of MITA. “But if we just keep talking about it, and do nothing, Michigan will continue to be dead last in per capita road funding. We will not be safe driving on deteriorating roads and bridges. And Michigan will be unable to attract new investors and keep current businesses who help make our economy strong.�
Nystrom said it is important that this message be reinforced with legislators, who for many years have considered an additional annual investment in infrastructure but have failed to act.

“This report just reminds us all that bad news does not get better with time,� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA), which has been lobbying the Michigan Legislature for increased transportation investment for years. “Legislators have known about the need for increased road investment for years, yet have done nothing to find a permanent, long-term solution to the problem.� Olson’s report shows the reality that it is less expensive to taxpayers to maintain good roads than to replace deteriorated roads, Nystrom said.

Mike Nystrom Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association Executive Vice President 517-896-1493 Road Industry Launches Billboards - Focused on Poor Bridges 1 in 8 MI Bridges are in Poor Condition; How Many Have You Crossed? Okemos, Mich. â€" Starting this week at billboard locations throughout the state, Michigan drivers and their state legislators will be reminded about the poor condition of Michigan’s bridges. The message: “Warning: 1 in 8 MI Bridges are in Poor Condition. How Many Have You Crossed?,â€� will appear on billboards on I-96 near Wixom and Pinckney roads; U.S. 23 near Ann Arbor; I-75 north of Detroit; I-69 and Royston Road in the Lansing area; and at a location in the Grand Rapids area. The campaign is being sponsored by the Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association (MITA), a leading advocate for increased state infrastructure funding. “According to Governor Snyder’s Infrastructure Dashboard, approximately 1,289 bridges, or about 13 percent of Michigan’s bridges are structurally deficient,â€� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of MITA. “Those figures make it very obvious that chances are if you drive over or under eight bridges or more, one of them will be structurally deficient. And, if nothing is done, chances are that one day one of those bridges could be closed to traffic; or, worse yet, collapse.â€� Nystrom said it is important that this message be reinforced with the public and legislators, who are very familiar with potholes on deteriorated roads, but may not be aware that Michigan’s bridges are also crumbling because of a lack of adequate investment.

“Our neighbors and other states choose to invest wisely in their roads and bridges because they understand that this investment will save money and lives, in addition to improving their economic climate and attracting new businesses,� said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA).
By choosing not to invest in the state’s infrastructure, Nystrom said, Michigan passes the burden onto drivers, who are currently enduring not only one of the worst winters on record, but an extremely early and intense pothole season.
“The annual cost per motorist of our potholed roads and deteriorating bridges was recently estimated by TRIP, a national transportation research group, at over $1,000,� Nystrom said. “If we invest more in our infrastructure, those hidden costs to motorists will decrease, and we will all be saving when we ‘hit the highway,’ not the pothole.�
Nystrom said that in the long run, deciding to postpone infrastructure investment will lead to not only more potholes, but more roads and bridges that need to be closed for repairs due to unsafe conditions, such as what happened recently with a major bridge in Auburn Hills.

The Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association is pleased by the Governor’s announcement today of an increase of approximately $254 million in funding for transportation in his budget recommendation. However, while we thank the Governor for his continued focus on making infrastructure a priority, we need to remind the Legislature that this one-time solution falls short of the overall annual need to maintain our transportation system, which is estimated at $2 billion per year.
