Our country has ignored the transportation infrastructure for too long and now we are paying the price.
When I lived and worked in Washington it always amazed me that I90 was like 5+ lanes wide on the West side of Snoqualmie Pass, then dropped down to 2 lanes at the summit, and was very bumpy. I do remember a project in the late 90's to get rid of the bumps.
I also remember driving back from Spokane on I90 about Ritzville, driving in the left lane as there was no one else in sight, and the right lane was very bumpy and rough. I passes two SP cars under an overpass doing 70 in a 65 zone and having one pull me over, the reason not speed, continued driving in the Left (AKA Passing) lane. I got off with a warning.
In Washington I believe it is what side of the state you live on!

Our roads in Connecticut are great according to the worst governor in the country! That's why the bridge in Greenwhich on I95 fell into the river

I have to add one to my earlier post and that's US 1 in Maine North of Freeport to at least the turn off to Lubec (ME189). There are short sections that really aren't too bad but then most miles rival any barely 10 foot lanes, potholed, raised crown, big drop offs to virtually no shoulder roads in the boondocks that I've ever driven - anywhere in the world. Every cupboard's contents is scrambled. But with that said, the Maine Coast is spectacular and worth the bouncy trip for lobster and other seafoods.

I agree !!!! When new car dealers started offering a "pothole insurance/replacement program" (for tires and wheels) along with their "extended warranty program" (for the rest of the vehicle) I realized there's a bigger problem than just dodging holes in the road.......

The roads get better the farther north you get, probably because of less traffic pounding the concrete into tiny pieces......

Interesting that RI is #1 with the second smallest miles and HI is #5 with smallest miles. In the top 5 with less miles to cover... Just an observation.

Obviously the 'shovel ready' jobs were only to erect those now disappeared signs

We just brought a car back from Massachusetts to Texas. New York and Louisiana were by far the worst. Wow. They are horrible.

Ha Ha.. Yep, we notice Northbound 75 smooths out the farther we get north. Pretty much smooth sailing from Saginaw/Bay City all the way to the trailer. US 23 is in good shape also
