OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A study by autoinsurance.org recently compared Nebraska's highways and bridges to other states.

The study's data comes from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), analyzing the conditions of Nebraska's highways and bridges and how much FHWA funding the state receives.

Nebraska ranks 10th in the nation's best highways with 71% considered in good condition.

The study shows Nebraska gets $3.2k per mile in FWHA funding while the national average is $12.4k. Overall, urban areas in the state are almost four times more likely to have roads in poor condition than in rural areas.
