The average driver in in the Anniston-Oxford-Gadsden area loses $1,301 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 transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC. Local speakers will join TRIP on Monday to highlight the report’s findings and discuss possible solutions.
The report, Anniston-Oxford-Gadsden Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the Region’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility, examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in the Anniston-Oxford-Gadsden area. In addition to a statewide report that examines Alabama’s transportation system as a whole, TRIP will also release regional reports with data for the Anniston-Oxford-Gadsden, Birmingham, Florence, Decatur-Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa urban areas.
