Efficiencies on Roads

Efficiencies on Roads

Michigan is not just the birthplace of the mass-produced automobile!  It's also the place where locally-controlled county road agencies gave birth to the modern road-building industry.

The first mile of concrete road, the first center-line painter, the first snow plow and the first below-grade super highway were all innovations of Michigan’s county road agencies.

County road agencies continue to be innovative through advances in modern technology and engineering techniques.  Innovations and efficiencies, both large and small, have allowed county road agencies to do more with less.
