A new report that evaluates the current condition, use and funding of Pennsylvania’s surface transportation system will be released on Wednesday, May 29, 2013. The report is being released by TRIP, a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC.
The report, "Future Mobility in Pennsylvania: The Cost of Meeting the State’s Need for Safe and Efficient Mobility," analyzes road and bridge conditions, traffic congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in Pennsylvania. TRIP’s report finds that Pennsylvania drivers lose a total of $9.4 billion each year as a result of driving on roads that are congested, deteriorated or lack some desirable safety features. Driving on deficient roads costs the average driver in the Harrisburg-York-Lancaster area more than $1,600 each year.
