The Kansas Department of Transportation has been recognized as maintaining the fifth-best state-owned road and highway system in the United States, according to a research foundation.

The California-based Reason Foundation recognized the department in a study that measured the performance of state-owned roads and highways in 12 categories covering cost effectiveness; maintenance and administrative costs; congestion; traffic fatalities; and road and bridge surface conditions.

Kansas ranked first nationwide for having the fewest miles of interstates rated in poor condition.

Kansas also made the top five last year.
