Each Denver area motorist loses nearly $2,200 annually as a result of driving on roads that are deteriorated, congested, and that lack some desirable safety features, according to a new report from TRIP, a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC. The author of the TRIP report will be available for media interviews in Denver throughout the day on Wednesday, March 1.

 

The report, Colorado Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility, examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in Colorado. In addition to statewide information, the report contains regional data for Colorado Springs, Denver, Northern Colorado, Grand Junction and Pueblo.
