BATON ROUGE- Louisiana's roads and other infrastructure elements were rated a C- by a group of engineers.

The American Society of Civil Engineers 2013 Report Card suggests roads, bridges, and levees aren't up to par.

Researchers said more than half of roadways are in poor or mediocre condition. Because of that, drivers pay about $400 a year in extra vehicle repairs.

About another recent, similar study, the state said findings don't mean infrastructure is not safe.
