No state handles more of America’s cargo than Texas. In fact, no state comes close. According to the latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Lone Star State handles around $2 trillion worth of commodities per year. And Texas has the infrastructure to handle it. Port Houston, the nation’s second biggest, has surpassed Rotterdam as the world’s largest petrochemical complex, officials say. Hurricane Harvey in 2017 put the state’s infrastructure to the test, and while some parts are still recovering, Texas mostly passed with flying colors.

2018 Infrastructure score: 288 out of 400 points (Top States Grade: A+)

Deficient bridges: 1.6 percent

Average commute to work: 26.5 minutes

Major airport: Dallas-Fort Worth International

20-year water-system needs: $45.2 billion
