Currently, what road do you hate the most?

I was horrified by I76 in southern PA.

Thanks

If it's for rough rides, potholes and bridge-to-pavement transitions, then Indiana.

Pick one.

I-40 through NM and AZ. Worst wind I’ve ever experienced.

But for everyday, bread and butter driving, I-76 and I-95 through Philly. The road surface is horrible and the traffic is usually very heavy. We should get combat pay for driving these two.

I agree 100% I can not believe Indiana can't figure out how to join a bridge and road. Even after "fixing" them they are horrible.

I HATE I-65 it's a rough road, tons of accidents and in winter time it's a skating rink. One day I'll have enough seniority to bid a run that doesn't use it.

Anything In South Carolina. I-95 drops to a rough 2-lane. I-26 mountain pass is fun but annoying with switchback turns the entire way. They shut one side down for construction with exit detour.

Every other interstate is has been under construction since 1872 to widen the two lanes. That’s even rougher with no shoulder for miles on end

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

I-40 from Memphis westward. In the sleeper I could prob guess my vicinity at any given time. Especially Ark and Oklahoma!

Hazardous Duty pay without question.

I’m constantly amazed at the engineering that prevents trailers from detaching over some roadways.

I-78 Pennsylvania from Allentown and eastward! The lanes are narrow, there is always construction, nobody obeys the truck lane restriction in construction zones, there are just enough hills to slow down heavier trucks, and the drivers are constantly jockeying around each other.

Parts of 1-40 in AZ will shake your truck apart!

24 around Nashville is more like an artillery testing range than an actual road.

Hate that stretch of 40 too. Mostly though 80 and 25 through WY. Good for a shut down every time for high winds.
