Transportation for America Campaign Delivers New Fact Sheets


Transportation for America has compiled new fact sheets for each state that detail the very real problems that the nation’s transportation system is facing – poor infrastructure, transit cuts, and lack of long-term planning. For Pennsylvania, some of the facts that stand out are the percentages for roads in poor conditions and the rise in travel delay time for the Philadelphia area. Regarding the conditions of Pennsylvania’s roads, the state is falling behind the nation in keeping up with dilapidated infrastructure. Approximately 11% of the state’s roads are in poor condition, while the number is much lower – 5.8% – for the general nation. And the annual delay time for travelers in Philadelphia went up approximately 40% – from 27 hours to 38 hours.
