    WTF is Shreveport doing with their Federal Highway Money? That has to be the worst 20 miles of Interstate I have ever driven on. How long has it been like that? What a effing nightmare!

    I think the Primary issue is Yazoo Clay. Once you leave Georgia your on Yazoo clay most of the way to Texas Yazoo clay makes horrible roadbeds. When I was an active driver I always just went around.

    Take the 220 bypass around. 3 minutes longer but we'll worth it.

    Looks like a perfectly normal stretch of concrete, much like 70 in Indiana.

    Other than drivers having overly sensitive buttocks anymore, what seems to be the problem? o_O
