WDIV-TV investigates why Detroit motorists were spending so much time in construction traffic, especially when many of the places motorists were backed up in were just repaved only months earlier. The investigation finds that crews were told by the governor's office to pave as much as they could with the smallest amount of asphalt. This resulted in simply "painting" the roads to please drivers temporarily.
