In a recent USA TODAY article on state infrastructure rankings, Nevada and Florida were #1 and #2 for best overall. The survey factored four categories into their overall rankings:
- Roads in poor condition
- Structurally deficient bridges
- State highway spending per driver
- Average travel time to work
Another state transportation study in U.S. News tracking slightly different data points named Nevada #1 and Florida #7 for best transportation infrastructure. All that to say, InfraStripe is proud to give a shout out to our team members serving in these two states that are leading our nation in prioritizing long-term safety and accessibility. We’d like to think that our NBSCO and AKCA crews have had a part in earning those distinguishments for their respective states. Quality road and infrastructure maintenance is a huge part of traffic and transportation safety, and our companies take every job seriously, delivering results that speak for themselves.
As we enter 2020, we thank Nevada and Florida for leading the way, and we encourage local, state, and national agencies to prioritize infrastructure maintenance and for the safety of our citizens and the sustainability of growth and economy.
