INFRASTRUCTURE

We have an aging and antiquated infrastructure from the power lines over our heads to the water and sewer lines under our feet.  One of Michigan resident's biggest complaints is concerning the conditions of our highways and bridges. 11 % of the bridges in Michigan are deemed structurally deficient. Unfortunately, we have been repairing or replacing them through a similar process for too many years. It's time we begin using more durable modern materials in the construction of our roads at a cost of only 10 - 15% more and our roads will have a longer structurally sound life. Quite possibly if we were to stop using the lowest bid contractors and insist on better quality materials we could improve the highways, keep repair money in the pockets of the residents and recoup difference in cost.
