Connecticut roads get a rough rating
(01/31/03) FAIRFIELD - A new survey conducted by a national transportation group shows Connecticut roads are among the worst in the country. The report shows that Connecticut roads rank seventh worst in the country.
The report by the Surface Transportation Policy Project says that nearly 80 percent of highways and secondary roads were rated "less than good condition" by the Federal Highway Administration.
The study rates states based on their spending of federal funds for repairing roads and bridges, improving air quality and ensuring traffic safety.
The state Department of Transportation calls the findings inaccurate.
