A new reports suggests poor road conditions are costing Minnesotans about one-point-eight-billion dollars per year. The findings from TRIP, a transportation research nonprofit, shows that the average resident driver spends about 543 dollars due to deteriorated roads.  These costs are linked to increased repairs, vehicle depreciation and fuel consumption.  TRIP also reports that 35-percent of Minnesota roads are in poor or mediocre condition.  As traffic ramps up, the nonprofit says more road improvements could save drivers money and save lives.
