(Honolulu, HI) -- Hawaii's rural roads and bridges are apparently among the nation's worst. According to "Pacific Business News," a report from The Road Information Program ranks the Aloha State fourth when it comes to bad rural roads and bridges. It finds that about a third of those roads were in poor condition in 2012 and in 2013, and 19-percent of those bridges were structurally deficient. The fatality rate on the rural roads is the 12th highest in the U.S.
