What is it about us?  We complain about our roads and then we complain when they're getting fixed.  I'm going to try and turn over a new leaf this year and embrace the Orange Barrels as a sign that something good is happening in our lives.  However, as I pointed out in a previous blog, we need to make sure that the improvements not only work but also last.  It's time we were not near the bottom in terms of road quality.  So lets spend that money we handed over with the increased gas tax, etc.

For those of us who will venture down the road this year, MDOT has provided a map for us to reference so we know ahead of time what to expect and when.  I think this will help ease the pain of the Orange Barrel-Traffic Back-Up Surprise.  Get the Michigan Map by clicking HERE.
