The average driver in in the Montgomery area loses $1,339 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, Montgomery 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 Montgomery 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.
