Missouri is among the best in the nation in terms of maximizing their roadway dollars. According to an annual study by The Reason Foundation, Missouri’s highway system ranks third in terms of performance and cost-effectiveness. That’s an improvement by six spots over last year’s study. Baruch Feigenbaum wrote the report.
Missouri ranked in the top 20 in all four categories for pavement condition. We also spend the third least amount of money per highway mile. The state’s worst ranking in the metrics included was in terms of bridge conditions, coming in 40th in terms of percentages of bridges classified as “deficient.”
