What state has the worst roads and bridges in the country?

Ever wonder what state has the worst roads and bridges in the nation? A new “It’s Time to Rebuild America” report from the White House gives that unfortunate title to Rhode Island.
The report claims that 41 percent of Rhode Island’s roads are in poor condition and a whopping 74 percent of the state’s bridges are deficient or obsolete.
Connecticut’s roads ranked just as bad as Rhode Island’s, but avoided the title because its bridges are in better shape. 74 percent of New Mexico’s bridges are in need of improvement, but they have better road conditions than Rhode Island.
As a result of the poor roads and bridges, Rhode Island drivers have the second highest vehicle repair cost in the nation. Connecticut drivers are a close third.
California drivers have the highest repair costs.
