WV Roads get high marks

August 24th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Steady improvements to West Virginia’s road system have apparently caught the attention of the authors of an annual study evaluating roads in every state across the country.  West Virginia’s highway system now ranks 16th in the nation in overall cost-effectiveness and condition, according to the Annual Highway Report published today by Reason Foundation. This is a 20-spot improvement from the previous report, where West Virginia ranked 36th overall. The 24th Annual Highway Report, based on data that states submitted to the federal government, ranks each state’s highway system in 13 categories, including traffic fatalities, pavement condition, congestion, spending per mile, administrative costs, and more.
