Connecticut has the second worst rural transportation system in the country, according to a new report. Thirty-nine percent of Connecticut’s rural roads are rated in poor condition.

Other ratings are equally alarming in the report: 34 percent of Connecticut’s rural roads are rated in mediocre condition; 8 percent of the state’s rural bridges are rated as structurally deficient.

Additionally, the rate of traffic fatalities on rural roads in Connecticut — 1.45 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles of travel — is nearly double the fatality rate on all other roads in the rest of of Connecticut.
