Study Calls for Increased Funds for Maryland Roads and Bridges

The Capital covered the release of a report from The Road Information Program, or TRIP, a national transportation research group in Washington, D.C. From the Capital‘s coverage:

“Maryland’s roads and bridges are deteriorating at a rate faster than the state can afford to repair them,” said Carolyn Bonifas, the study’s author and TRIP’s associate director of research and communications. These statistics “definitely are not a sign of failure … The agencies are doing a tremendous job (but) they are not able to keep up with these roads because they are so strapped for financial support.”

The full report is available in pdf form from the TRIP website.
