Governor Gretchen Whitmer is putting together a plan to make good on her campaign promise to fix the roads.
According to WILX-News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, the Governor held a town hall meeting outlining her strategy to get it done.
Her plan includes raising $2.5 billion a year by phasing in a fuel tax that will cost drivers roughly $23 per month.
Whitmer talked about some necessary road projects in Eaton County, stating that $3 million is needed to get those projects accomplished.
Some of those include road projects on M-43, Lansing Road, and Mount Hope. Governor Whitmer added that the roads are in a crisis state and her plan will bring a permanent solution to the problem.
