County Road Investment Plan
CRA has released the Michigan County Road Investment Plan, which provides a realistic picture for restoring the 75% of Michigan roads and 52% of bridges under county jurisdiction.
The Michigan County Road Investment Plan of 2021 concluded:
- The statewide target investment for the 90,000-mile, 5,700-bridge local network is $3.6 billion annually.
- Of that total, $1.7 billion is already directed to county roads through FY 2019, including legislatively-appropriated income tax dollars and increased annual gas tax and vehicle registration fees through FY 2019. This means a $1.8 billion additional annual investment is required to achieve county road goals.
CRA has established the same restoration goal for county roads as the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is utilizing:
- 90% good/fair for federal aid-eligible roads in 10 years. These roads currently have an average rating of 52% good/fair across all counties.
- 60% good/fair for local, nonfederal aid-eligible roads in 10 years. These roads currently have an average rating of 46% across all counties.
