CASA GRANDE — It’s unknown how much of President Joe Biden’s proposed $2 trillion infrastructure plan would be directed toward Arizona or Pinal County but both the state and the county certainly could use the funds to help repair local and state roadways.
Quote Wizard, a website that allows users to compare rates on home, auto, health and life insurance, recently ranked all U.S. states by overall road conditions based on the percentage of non-acceptable roads and percentage of total square miles of bridge decks being labeled as poor according to data from the Federal Highway Administration.
Rhode Island ranked the worst at No. 1 with 50% of its roads being non-acceptable and 23% of bridge decks being labeled as poor. Wyoming was ranked the best at No. 50 with 5% of its roads listed as non-acceptable and 7.4% of its bridge decks being rated as poor.
