Michigan Department of Transportation

LANSING – Michigan's highway department repeatedly hires contractors whose work requires fixes, hasn't tracked contractors who've failed to fix their work, and relies on a faulty federal program to weed out bad actors. The Michigan Department of Transportation says 13% of warrantied roads jobs have required corrective action. But documented weaknesses in MDOT's oversight beg the questions: How many needed fixes have been missed? And what might be wrong on the 55% to 65% of MDOT jobs that aren't warrantied?
