    I was expecting it to be the Seneca Nation in NY. That section of 90 is pretty bad and there seems to be some posturing going on.

    That is really good road compared to the first 15 miles of I 75 in Michigan or most any road you choose in Indiana

    Pulaski Hwy here in MD is pretty rough. It suffers from the same problem as pretty much anywhere, the asphalt over concrete disease.

    Seems they should either fix the roads or quit taking ifta money. I wonder what kind of response a driver would get if he sent the state the repair bill for driving on their roads?

    I also completely agree with the Michigan I-75 comments. One drive on that road equals a week of pissing blood.
     
    Dave_in_AZ and Lepton1 Thank this.

    I've driven through Indiana and Michigan, on- and off-interstate and I still haven't found any roads worse than what we have here in Manitoba. MB highway 239 was rated recently as one of the worst roads in the province, and I travel it regularly to pick up limestone. There are some ruts and potholes that will throw out your alignment if you hit them wrong.
     
    stwik, Lepton1 and tucker Thank this.

    Oklahoma has always been bad. When I started in '05, 40 and that US Highway that goes to Muskogee were full on WTF washboard.

    #3 has to be Indiana or California.
    #4 has to be Indiana or California.

    Illinois has some bad stretches in the southern part of the State. i74/i72 I think it was had foot deep craters not too long ago.

    Some on/off ramps around Chicago are pretty bad too.

    Worst in Indiana is i69 going to Fort Wayne
