Some interesting data.
Massachusetts administrative costs per mile of highway is $74,855. National average? $10,579.
We spend $675,312 per mile on our highways, second only to New Jersey.
National average? $160,202.
Despite spending 5 times the national average, this same report shows Mass. roads and bridges to be among the worst in the U.S.
And they wonder why we don’t want to give them more gas tax dollars.
