Why Does It Cost So Much to Maintain New Jersey's Roads?

September 9, 2016

The high cost of road work in New Jersey was the subject of a recent study by Rutgers University Voorhees Transportation Center, whose researchers tallied the costs of planning, building, operating, and maintaining the state’s highway system.

“What we found was that, on average, based on a review of annual expenditures over a period of five years, that costs were approximately $183,000 per lane mile,” said Rutgers Voorhees Transportation Center Director Jon Carnegie.
