The average driver in in the Chattanooga urban area loses nearly $1,500 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, Tennessee 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 Tennessee. In addition to statewide information, the report contains regional data for Chattanooga, Knoxville, Memphis and Nashville.
