  1. Should have finished Sherman st between Illinois and Ann st. Thanks for nothing Norm Abbott !

  2. You got to be kidding. You forgot 17200-17300 block of Community? It’s hands down the worst road in Lansing. A lot of elderly folks live on that stretch. Isn’t that on your list of needing immediate attention. Shame on you!!!

  3. That’s it ?
    I was told $1 million was allocated
    This is why I didn’t vote. We are behind 20 years in getting our roads fixed and it’s not getting done. The street I live on has some very nice homes but our street looks like crap
    If you have to raise property taxes to get it done then do it!!!

  4. Take a look at the 2900 block of 193rd Street in Oakwood Estates. You can’t even dodge the potholes because you’ll hit a parked car. It’s embarrassing.
