It shouldn’t be any surprise to people who drive in Western New York that New York ranked very low on a study of highway performance and cost effectiveness.

According to The Reason Foundation, The nation’s top-performing, most cost-effective highways can be found in South Carolina, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska and Maine, according to Reason Foundation’s Annual Highway Report.

Just in the last couple of weeks, Erie County Legislator John Mills was pushing for improvements to be made on Springville-Boston Road in Southern Erie County. Although it is a rural road, it is just one of the many roads/highways that are in poor condition.

Whether it’s a result of the climate or lack of funding, New York’s 45 place on the list is not surprising.
