Why Vote Yes on Proposal 1?

Michigan’s Roads are Crumbling

  • The numbers don’t lie. Michigan’s transportation infrastructure is rapidly deteriorating. Decades of insufficient investment have left us with roads in poor condition and structurally deficient bridges.

Michigan’s Roads are a Threat to Driver Safety

  • Michigan’s crumbling roads put lives in danger every day and cost drivers hundreds of dollars in repairs each year.
  • Drivers must swerve to avoid gaping potholes, causing possible accidents. Pieces of plywood hold up bridges, becoming the only thing standing between motorists and falling chunks of concrete.
  • Unsafe roads delay first-responders when responding to emergency situations.

Michigan’s Roads are Critical to the Economy

  • Safe and effective roads are not luxury items. Businesses, employees and customers depend on them to navigate the marketplace and grow the economy. Michigan cannot cut corners on critical infrastructure and expect to prosper.
  • Dangerous roads undermine Michigan’s ability to compete. The longer we wait to fix the problem, the more potential employers and investors are driven away to other states.

Vote “Yes” on Proposal 1

  • It’s time for a solution. On May 5th, Michigan will have the chance to finally fix the roads.
  • By voting “Yes” on Proposal 1, voters can once and for all guarantee long-term, sustainable funding for the state’s infrastructure.
  • Proposal 1 modernizes our infrastructure funding system and raises a much-needed $1.2 billion for roads.
  • There is no other plan on the table. Proposal 1 is our last, best chance to ensure the safe, effective roads for Michigan’s businesses, drivers and first-responders.
