State’s highway system ranks higher
According to Reason Foundation’s “18th Annual Highway Report,” Mississippi’s highway system ranks 27th in the nation in overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness. And, the Magnolia State was one of only three states to post double-digit gains.
The study finds over half of all state-owned highways across the country are congested and 25 percent of bridges are deficient or functionally obsolete.
The Reason Foundation study examines state highway systems in 11 categories, including congestion, pavement condition, fatalities, deficient bridges and total spending. The annual report is based on information that each state reported for the year 2007.
