Michigan Department of Transportation says most pump houses in poor shape

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Freeway cleanup in metro Detroit after Monday's storm is expected to cost about 500-thousand dollars. The problem, though, wasn't just the rain.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says that 58-percent of their pump houses are in poor condition and 20-percent are in only fair condition. The goal is, of course, to have all pump stations in good condition but, according to MDOT spokesperson Jeff Cranson, "that's not realistic given funding challenges."
