Bay Area Traffic
Bad roads costing Bay Area drivers thousands
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Driving on congested Bay Area highways that are pocked with potholes costs drivers more than $2,000 a year.
TRIP, a national transportation research group identified Interstate 880 through Oakland as one of the Bay Area's worst roadways.
The group says California needs to spend $10 billion more every year to maintain its roads and freeways.
The $2,000, they say, is a result of crashes, delays and added vehicle maintenance from driving on bad roads.
O the plus side, Santa Clara County has been awarded $5 million in federal stimulus money to redesign the Highway 101 interchanges at Capitol Expressway and Yerba Buena Road.
