Texas’ Infrastructure Best In Nation In 2017

 Texas has the best infrastructure in the country, according to CNBC’s 2017 “America’s Top States for Business” rankings. With only 1.7 percent of its bridges deemed “structurally deficient” but a 25.6 minute average work commute and $33.9 billion needed over the next two decades to fix its water systems, the state scored 251 out of 400 points, moving it up from the No. 2 spot, tied with Tennessee, last year. At the opposite end of this year’s rankings was Rhode Island, scoring 95 points, with 24.9 percent of its bridges deficient and 70 percent of its roads in mediocre or poor condition.
