Florida tops in nation on infrastructure

A new report suggests Florida takes care of its infrastructure better than any other state.

The analysis by 24/7 Wall St, a financial reporting firm, puts the Sunshine State at the top of the heap based on its review of federal records on the conditions of roads, bridges, dams. It also looked at how much each state prioritizes highway spending.

Here’s what the report, dubbed “States That Are Falling apart,” concluded about Florida:

— 3.2% of the state’s roads are in poor condition (3rd best in the U.S.)

— 2.1% of its bridges are rated as deficient (also 3rd best)

— 6.3% of the state’s dams are considered at “high hazard risk” (9th best overall)

— 8.7% of Florida’s total government spending is spent on highways (only seven states spent more as a percentage).
