Which State’s Infrastructure is the Worst?

National  + Weekender  | 

Regardless of one’s political affiliation, polarized politics unite on a single topic: the importance of infrastructure spending. According to a recent Gallup poll, three out of four Americans approve of President Trump’s plan to increase infrastructure spending.

The proposed $1-trillion plan is intended to fix broken bridges, improve aging roads and secure tunnel systems throughout the country. Nationwide, 9% of bridges are structurally deficient, and 17% of dams are considered to have high hazard potential.

According to an index made by 24/7 Wall Street, the following states’ infrastructure is ranked the worst, based on the number of roads in poor condition, deficient bridges, hazardous dams and calculated state highway spending per driver:

  1. Rhode Island
  2. Hawaii
  3. West Virginia
  4. Pennsylvania
  5. California
