Michigan Road Projects Could Face Delays

A decision in Lansing today could delay more than 200 road and bridge projects across the state. A state transportation committee is expected to approve its newest project plan. Michigan Transportation officials are preparing to delay projects planned for the next five years because the state is running low on money. Michigan could go from spending roughly $1.4 billion on roads this year with the help of federal stimulus money to less than $600 million three out of the next four years. The state is in danger of losing federal matching funds for roads because it doesn't spend enough of its own money on projects.
