MAPS IN THE NEWS:
If you drove anywhere for Memorial Day, you may have noticed the roads over which you traveled. In Rhode Island, for example, more than half the roads are considered to be in poor condition according to the Federal Highway Administration. (Other states with roads in particularly poor condition include, in alphabetical order, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, New Jersey, New Mexico, and West Virginia, plus the District of Columbia.) So would states use federal infrastructure dollars to repair their roads? This map from The Washington Post shows where states are more interested in new road-building projects (in blue) than in repairing their existing roads (in orange). www.washingtonpost.com/wp-apps/imrs.php?src=https://arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-washpost.s3.amazonaws.com/public/Z3LEE6W3QNDLDGGVY3XHGECNVM.jpg
