Compilation: TRIP – Honolulu Ranks 13th in Nation for Poor Roads

Honolulu’s pothole-plagued roads have improved in recent years but local drivers still pay a heavy toll in car-repair costs to use them, a D.C.-based transportation research group found.

About 43 percent of the major roads in town are in poor condition, according to a report on the nation’s roads released today by TRIP, an insurance company-sponsored nonprofit firm that looks at roads across the country and pushes for improvements. TRIP further found those conditions to cost motorists on average $598 each year in repairs. That’s based on 2011 data.

TRIP first provided the Star-Advertiser the 2011 Honolulu figures in March, for the newspaper’s “Road Woes” series on the city’s aging motorways.
