Practical Solutions Framework - State of good repair

  • State of Good Repair
    Just like owning a home, you have to maintain and preserve it to keep the value of the original investment
    • Includes the physical condition of the infrastructure and how well it meets operational needs
  • Annual cost for vehicle repairs and operations costs due to poor road conditions: estimated at $656 ¹ for every Washington driver
    • With 5.768 million licensed drivers in Washington, it adds up to an estimated $3.78 billion spent
    • That's equivalent to a $1.14 gas tax
  • We can fix this!
