There are at least two things that are universal about living in Southeastern Michigan — we all drive on crumbling roads and bridges, and we all have our own opinions about what needs to be done to fix those terrible roads.

In the coming weeks, the Center for Michigan is giving people an opportunity to share those thoughts during a series of events across Michigan.

The Center is holding three events as part of the Roads Solutions Summit, starting with an event Thursday in Detroit at 9 a.m.
