The Worst Roads In The USA


-- this post authored by Martin Armstrong

The American Society of Civil Engineers 2017 infrastructure report card has revealed the states in the U.S. with the worst roads.

At the top of the list is Connecticut with a shameful 57 percent of its roads classified as being in poor condition. Pothole-ridden roads aren't merely an annoyance, either. The ASCE estimates that motorists in Connecticut will incur annual costs of $864 as a direct result of driving on the state's roads. While some states (Alabama - 2%) barely have any roads in shoddy condition, overall as a country, the USA was given a 'must do better' D grade on the latest scorecard.

This chart shows the U.S. states with the highest share of roads in poor condition.
