Minnesota Roads Slip In Rankings
A new report gives Minnesota’s freeways a C for congestion and poor pavement condition.
The state slid 10 spots to No. 25 in a new ranking of highways in all 50 states.
The report came last week from the Reason Foundation, a nonpartisan, libertarian-oriented group.
Deteriorating rural freeways and congested urban interstate highways hurt Minnesota’s standing, even though the state has one of the lowest rates of traffic deaths and relatively few bridges in poor condition.
