City of Detroit taking over highway cleanup efforts from MDOT

The garbage lining Detroit freeways is an unfortunate reality for those living in the city, but a change could be on the way. The Michigan Department of Transportation is in charge of cleaning the highways, but in March, the City of Detroit is taking over. MDOT will be allocating the city $650,000 annually to take over the job. We went out to take a look at the state of some of the freeways. We found much of the same when it comes to trash, and then some. For instance, there was a mattress on the exit ramp at Wyoming from The Lodge Freeway, and don't forget the tires.
