Report: Madisonians lose $2,100 per year on bad roads

Deteriorating roads and bridges, congestion, and the lack of some desirable safety features cost Wisconsin motorists a total of $6.8 billion annually and Greater Madison residents $2,139 per driver, according to a new report released today by TRIP, a Washington, D.C.- based research group that advocates for increased investment in transportation infrastructure.

The TRIP report, titled “Wisconsin Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility,” says that in Madison, the resulting cost comes in the form of higher vehicle operating costs, traffic crashes, and congestion-related delays.

Throughout Wisconsin, the report found that one-half of major locally and state-maintained roads are in poor or mediocre condition and 9% of locally and state-maintained bridges are structurally deficient.

Why is the topic of Wisconsin's Infrastructure not in the forefront of the run for Governor? Instead the need to reduce our prison population or not is taking the lead.
