A new report analyzing data from the U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Census Bureau finds that New Hampshire has the best roads in America, while “[spending] some of the lowest capital outlay per mile.”
“New Hampshire has made smart investments in our infrastructure, and we’ve returned over $100 Million to cities and towns across the Granite State for roads and bridges,” said Governor Sununu. “It’s with that sense of smart fiscal management that we’ve paved the way to be ranked the #1 state for taxpayer return on investment.”
New Hampshire’s #1 Ranking is a testament to the Department of Transportation’s management of roadways, given New Hampshire receives the lowest amount of total federal funding for roads and bridges.
“New Hampshire is blessed with a dedicated team of professionals that works hard to build and maintain our transportation system and I’m honored that we are being recognized for our work. I credit their commitment to our asset management strategy and sustained investment to our success,” said NH Department of Transportation Commissioner Bill Cass.
