State's highways ranked among worst

Connecticut's state highway system is on the decline, now ranked one of the worst in the nation, according to a Reason Foundation study.

The Libertarian foundation this week ranked the state highways 44th nationally. The state ranked 37th and 41st in two previous reports.

Connecticut ranked dead last in terms of administrative costs, spending more than seven times the national average per mile of highways on oversight activities. Connecticut also was one of the worst five states in terms of bridge deficiencies and urban interstate congestion.

On the plus side, Connecticut had the second lowest fatality rate in the nation.
