(WFXR) – A new report from the American Society of Civil Engineers has given the infrastructure of the United States a C- for this year, which is actually up slightly from 2019’s grade of D.
The report also breaks down the needs of Virginia – saying that 14-percent of roads in the Commonwealth are in poor condition.
Driving on roads deemed “sub-standard” costs drivers in the Commonwealth an average of $517 a year on vehicle repairs.
Virginia’s 13,933 bridges are also generally showing signs of needing repair. Of those, 4.4-percent were deemed “structurally deficient” in 2019.
Another key aspect of the report, shows that Virginia has 356 dams that have been labeled as “high hazard.”
