Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

A new study says Peoria and Bloomington drivers are losing over $1,500 a year on “deficient” roads.

TRIP, a transportation research non-profit, says more than half of locally and state-maintained roads in Peoria and Bloomington are in poor to mediocre condition.

The report says vehicle operating costs would be about $600 annually per driver. It also goes on to say that traffic congestion costs about $400 in lost time and wasted fuel.

The study also factors in deadly traffic crashes, which financially balances out to over $500.
