The state of Michigan has tens of millions of dollars set aside to reduce flooding on Metro Detroit freeway systems over the next four years, but experts warn that's just a drop in the bucket of what's needed.

The Michigan Department of Transportation plans to spend about $27 million to rehabilitate its pump stations over the next four years, more than matching the $25 million spent on the pump stations over the prior four years. The state is tackling problematic flooding on below-grade or depressed freeway systems amid concerns about the "climate resiliency of the state's infrastructure."
