Twenty of the "worst-performing state highway systems" in the U.S. have been named by the Reason Foundation in its annual study that measures each state's highway conditions and expenditures. Alaska was the worst-performing system in overall efficiency and performance, followed by Rhode Island and Hawaii. North Dakota was the best. "A focus on early maintenance," can help improve the states' highways, said David Hartgen, emeritus transportation professor at UNC Charlotte in North Carolina and author of the report.
