The average driver in in the Springfield area loses nearly $1,600 annually as a result of driving on roads that are deteriorated, congested, and that lack some desirable safety features, according to a new report from TRIP, a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC. Local speakers will join TRIP on Wednesday to highlight the report’s findings and discuss possible solutions.

In addition to statewide information, the report contains regional data for the Columbia-Jefferson City, Kansas City, St. Louis and Springfield urban areas.
