Study ranks Louisiana in top 5 of worst interstate highways in US

UNDATED - For some, the only shock that will come from a study that indicates Louisiana interstate highways are a nightmare is that there are states found to be worse.

A Washington, DC-based transportation group, TRIP, found Louisiana's interstate highways are the fourth worst in the country.

Crumbling highways, huge pot holes, heavy traffic and the rate of deadly crashes are all factors for the poor rating.

If you're wondering, Hawaii, California and Nevada are the states listed with interstate systems worse than Louisiana's.

Louisiana also had the greatest increase in vehicle miles of travel on its interstate highways from 2001 to 2014.
