Florida Top in Nation on Infrastructure
A new report, "States That Are Falling Apart" by financial reporting firm, 24/7 Wall St., ranks Florida's infrastructure among the top in the nation.
The report follows the company's recent review and analysis of federal records on the conditions of roads, bridges and dams as well as how each state prioritizes highway spending.
Here's how Florida ranked:
- 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).
