LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Department of Transportation is taking to social media to "myth-bust" misconceptions about the department and the condition of state roads. The "Transportation Reality Check" videos are being posted on You Tube.
Officials say one of the videos responds to claims that Michigan's roads are not in bad of shape and more money for roadwork can wait. MDOT says funding is needed badly for the state's roads and bridges because they are deteriorating.
A second video dismisses claims the state does not use enough salt in the winter to keep roads clear. Additional videos will reportedly be released throughout the year.
