Progress Michigan Statement on Shirkey’s Road ‘Solution’

Senator’s plan to turn roads to gravel is a complete joke

LANSING — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding a bizarre idea from Sen. Mike Shirkey saying that rather than fixing Michigan’s roads and bridges, the state should just turn a bunch of them into gravel roads.

“I understand that Sen. Shirkey is just coming back from a Mackinac Island retreat with GOP donors and it seems he brought back some horseshit and is calling it a roads plan,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Honestly, we waited for six months for Republicans to release their super-secret roads fix and their suggestion is to turn them back to gravel? The GOP needs to get serious and get back to work.”
