WHO PAYS FOR ROADS? A STATE-BY-STATE LOOK

Biking in Maryland-> State Smart Transportation Initiative reports all roads are subsidized, but to wildly varying degrees in each state. A new state-by-state study from the Tax Foundation found that user fees only cover a fraction of total road costs, ranging from 12% in Alaska to 76% in Hawaii. (How Are Your State’s Roads Funded?: http://bit.ly/2vNU2L9) While the report does not give a national figure, a previous version estimated user fees cover just 50% of road costs. http://bit.ly/2wGpd7l

from CenterLines, the e-newsletter of the National Center for Bicycling & Walking.

[B' Spokes: Maryland share of roads paid by user fees and taxes is 66.9%.]
