If you’ve driven down any one of our interstate highways in recent years it will come as no surprise to you that our infrastructure is in poor shape.  In fact, Connecticut received a below average grade in a recent report released by the Federal government.  With so much traffic rolling through our state it is critical that these roads and bridges are addressed as poor infrastructure will often lead to New Haven auto accidents.

It was reported that 248 bridges throughout the state are in poor condition and over 2,100 miles of road are also in poor condition.  That coupled with the 19% of public transit that has passed it’s useful life is a recipe for disaster in our state.

Failing roads and bridges can have devastating impacts on our ability to move safely throughout our communities and this isn’t just about potholes, although they are a piece of it.  Roads that have poor drainage, bridges that are structurally unsound, these are the types of issues that can present themselves as real problems to all of us who are traveling on Connecticut’s roadways.  Whether you’re commuting to work or heading out on a family road trip these types of poor conditions can have a real impact on your safety.

The impact that failing roads and bridges have on our daily commutes can be a nuisance at best and a danger for getting into a New Haven auto accident at worst.
