Report shows Pa. highways are improving

August 23, 2019

The Reason Foundation, a self-described libertarian public policy think tank, is seldom kind to Pennsylvania in assessing the quality and performance of our transportation system. The foundation’s methodology makes for imperfect comparisons with other states, so we tend to view its reports with some skepticism.

Nevertheless, whether one agrees that Pennsylvania’s highways deserve to be ranked 35th in performance and cost effectiveness, the foundation’s latest report acknowledges that there has been improvement since its previous report, in which our ranking was 41st.

We can postulate that there would have been virtually no chance for improvement without the passage of Act 89 of 2013, which boosted fuel taxes and license and registration revenue by $2.3 billion annually. To view the foundation’s latest report, which was released this week, click here.
