How much money does your state need to repair all those potholes?

So you pay gas taxes, right? Isn't that enough to fund transportation in your state?

Join Smart Growth America Wednesday, March 12, for the release of their latest edition of Repair Priorities. The Repair Priorities report takes a look at how each state DOT spends their transportation funds on repair and preservation versus expansion. SGA will host a webinar at 11:00 to discuss their findings, along with a panel with officials from state DOTs that are prioritizing road repair.  

To sign-up for the webinar and to download the report once it's released, visit Smart Growth America's website.
