The average driver in in the Hartford urban area loses nearly $2.400 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. Local speakers will join TRIP on Tuesday to highlight the findings and discuss possible solutions.

The report, Connecticut Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe and Efficient Mobility, examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in Connecticut. In addition to statewide information, the report contains regional data for Bridgeport-Stamford, Hartford and New Haven.
