Roads in 49th state rank last in the union

    Alaska has the worst highways in the country, according to a new ranking.

    The reason Foundation, a libertarian think tank, dropped Alaska from 49th to 50th in its latest study of the condition and cost-effectiveness of highway systems.

    Alaska was at the bottom in the condition of paved rural highways and arterials. However, Alaska ranks better than most states for urban congestion, crumbling bridges, or spending per mile.

    Alaska is just behind New Jersey and Hawaii, while South Carolina, South Dakota, and Kansas are ranked as having the most cost-effective roads.
