White House infrastructure report cards reveal states with the worst roads and bridges

White House

The White House has released reports detailing the infrastructure status of each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, revealing which areas of the country have the poorest road and bridge conditions.

The fact sheets, released on April 12, highlight the nationwide urgent infrastructure needs and the number of bridges and miles of road in each state considered to be in “poor condition.” The fact sheets also show how much commute times have increased since 2011 and how much drivers pay per year in costs due to driving on roads in need of repair.

The fact sheets are a part of a series from the White House meant to highlight the benefits of the American Jobs Plan.

According to the fact sheets, the American Jobs Plan will devote more than $600 billion to transform our nation’s transportation infrastructure, including $115 billion in repairing roads and bridges.

States and territories received a letter grade on their individual report. Georgia and Utah received the highest grade of all the states with a C+, while Puerto Rico ranked the lowest with a D-.

Texas, which received a C grade, had 19,400 miles of road in poor condition, the most out of any state. Iowa, which also received a C grade, had the highest number of bridges in poor condition, a total of 4,571.

In the District of Columbia, drivers pay the most, $1,100 per year, in costs due to driving on roads in need of repair. California’s commute times have increased by 14.6%, the most in the country since 2011. Both the District of Columbia and California received a C- on their report.
