Local Money: Why all of our roads are so bad

This week a listener wrote to us asking why the roads in his town were so bad, despite that fact that his state was running a budget surplus. This is not a problem unique to one town or city. The problem with dilapidated roads and bridges can be found all across the country. In fact, we did a story on a problematic infrastructure problem a few weeks ago.
