Roads and bridges that are deficient, congested or lack desirable safety features cost Tennessee motorists a total of $5.6 billion statewide annually – as much as $1,821 per driver in some areas – due to higher vehicle operating costs, traffic crashes and congestion-related delays. Increased investment in transportation improvements at the local, state and federal levels could relieve traffic congestion, improve road, bridge and transit conditions, boost safety, and support long-term economic growth in Tennessee, according to a new report released by TRIP, a Washington, D.C.-based national transportation organization.
