Rhode Island, Oklahoma and West Virginia Top the Nation for Worst Road Infrastructure




SEATTLE, Sept. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — On top of taxpayer dollars, it’s estimated that driving on roads in need of repair costs motorists $120 billion in vehicle repairs and operating costs – $533 per driver, according to a recent report by QuoteWizard.

QuoteWizard®, a LendingTree company, and one of the nation’s leading online insurance marketplaces released its report on States with the Worst Road Infrastructure finding that 61% of highways nationwide are in fair to poor condition. Transportation for America estimates a cost of $231 billion a year to keep our existing road network in acceptable repair.

While analyzing FHA data, QuoteWizard found a correlation between states that use funds to maintain roads and states that rank well overall for road infrastructure. States with poor road infrastructure had higher costs per driver and typically poor road conditions across the board.

Key Findings:

Rhode Island, Oklahoma and West Virginia top in the nation for worst road infrastructure.
Tennessee, Georgia and Florida best in the nation for road infrastructure.
Top 10 states with the worst infrastructure costs drivers an annual average of $752 from poor road conditions.
Top 5 states with the worst infrastructure spend below the national average of 30% on-road repairs.

Methodology

QuoteWizard analyzed Federal Highway Administration data to rank states on the overall quality of road infrastructure. Rankings are a composite score based on a state’s rating in the percentage of poor condition roads, the annual cost per motorist from roads in need of repair and percentage of structurally deficient bridges. Rankings 1 to 50 are from 1st as worst overall road infrastructure and 50th as best overall road infrastructure.
