DETROIT (WWJ) – The harsh winter has taken its toll on metro Detroit roads, and some patch-up work is on the way.

As WWJ’s John Bailey reports, the freeze-thaw cycle has made the potholes on southeast Michigan roads even more evident, but some of the most pockmarked roads are due for permanent repairs.

Mound Road in Sterling Heights, Dequindre in Shelby Township and Rochester Hills, and Haggerty Road in Livonia and Northville Township rank high on MDOT’s list to fix.

    Wyoming, 7 to 8 mile is a god awful stretch of road.
    It’s been like that for years temp patch jobs have been half hearted at best.

      That one at Livernois and Curtis is really dangerous.

    James Cousins service drive at Curtis. Most of James Cousins is a wreck.

  7. Brian says:

    Brian looks like there’s some patching going on but the one at Bagley school (Greenlawn and Curtis) was a pretty poor job. There’s still a hole after the patch.

    Wyoming 7 to 8 still a minefield.

  8. Brian Johnson says:

    Curtis 7 to 8 is still a mess but there is a massive blind spot on the median of woodward and 7 mile. A ridiculous hedge blocks the view of the driver whose at the light. That grove, crop or bushel really needs to go!
