UNDATED -- Oklahoma's roads fell three more spots and now rank 37th in the nation in state highway performance and cost-effectiveness, according to Reason Foundation's new 19th Annual Highway Report.

The study ranks each state's interstate highways and state-controlled roads in 11 categories, including costs per mile, congestion, pavement condition, deficient bridges and fatalities.

National performance improved greatly in 2008, the most recent year with complete data available.

Oklahoma ranks 46th in urban interstate condition, 40th in fatalities, 38th in deficient or functionally obsolete bridges and 17th in urban interstate congestion.
