Roads and bridges that are deficient, congested or lacking desirable safety features cost New Jersey motorists a total of $11.8 billion statewide annually – nearly $2,000 per driver – 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 and bridge conditions, boost safety, and support long-term economic growth in New Jersey, according to a new report released by TRIP, a Washington, DC based national transportation organization.
