This is true, you've never seen bad roads until you've been to Michigan. First, in order to get people to run through the state and use I94 instead of 80 to the south, Michigan has some of the highest payload limits on their roads. On top of that, Michigan is not only cold but because of the lake-effect snows that they get (especially in the west end of the state like DV is talking about) there's a constant salting and plowing going on to help the extreme expansion/contraction destroy the roads. Even here in NJ I drive on I-80 between PA and NYC which is easily the most heavily traveled stretch of highway in the U.S. and its nowhere near as bad as in Michigan. Even when they do repair the roads, all they ever do is remove top layer and resurface them. In Michigan the entire road is removed down to dirt and relayed inch by inch in many cases. Its really a huge problem there-

HAHA! I'm glad we're not the only ones. Back in May we drove from Atlanta, GA to Oklahoma City. That I40 is horrible, holy crapola. One day we drove west of OKC out to say we stepped foot in Texas, so we got I40 from one end of the state to the other and I whole heartedly agree, it's bad!

But I did love OKC. I wish I could move out there.

Oh yeah, the farmland was definitely pretty. But after about 2 hours, it's boring for sure.

40FORDY The sad thing is there are bad roads everywhere. Most of them were constructed back in the thirties during the depression. Hmmmm, maybe Mr. O. could put a few thousand people back to work repairing them.....nah. Today's "young man" wouldn't lower himself to do road work. Besides the work that I saw being done along our highways last week was being done by hispanic, ALL hispanic and they were working their collective butts off in 100 degree weather most of the way.
I just typed a whole paragraph of how I feel about the billions that are pissed away on BS everyday instead of things that are actually important.....But I just got mad so I deleted it!
Have a great day!!!!!

wretched ratchet Sooner Country has the WORST roads that I have ever driven on. Several years ago a buddy and I went to Okla City to pick up a horse for a friend of mine. Early that morning we somehow ended uip on the H.E.Bailey Turnpike and since we were broke and cheap we decided to jump off and travel the back roads and save the Toll Fee - - - - BIG MISTAKE, that poor old Bay pony was almost crippled by the time we got to Lawton from trying to stand up in that trailer over those wagon trails - - - LOL

Bad Rat I don't really know the conditions of Oklahoma's roads,, but I definitely can say that if a person wanted to start up a business of either front end wheel alignment, or a funeral home. I would HIGHLY consider Indiana, The roads are terrable to say the least,, and I don't think anyone under the age of 80 is allowed to live in Indiana,
They don't even have curbs around the parking lots,, cause the old folks might trip over them,,

MARTINSR I have been thru there and don't remember it being that bad. I can say that Arkansas does have some beautiful highways! That perfectly cut green grass along the sides, absolutely beautiful.

techinspector1 The worst roads I ever drove on were on the big island of Hawaii, particularly the road to the prison. I was just sight-seeing and wanted to go back there to see it, but got about 3 miles in at 5 mph (as fast as you could go without being thrown out of the car), turned around and went back to the main road that encircles the island. Unbelievable.

The rental car companies forbid you to go across Saddleback Road, the one that goes between the volcanos in the middle of the island. I guess they got tired of spending money to fix suspension systems on the rentals.

NEW INTERIORS I didn't think anyone had roads worst then Louisiana. Swamp land..

40FORDY SOOO....Redsdad, it's all YOUR fault! just kidding.

Actually I'm sorry. I didn't mean to insinuate that the entire state of Oklahoma sucked. Just the roads.....and really they are the worst right around OK city, where they are horrible. They really don't need speed limit signs because you can't go faster than 45mph on the highway.

redsdad First, let me say I am sorry about the Oklahoma roads. We were amazed how bad they are when we first moved here.

Part of the problem is that ODOT receives less than 1% of the tag fees. About 16% goes to towns and counties for their roads. And approximately 43% goes to the General Fund, part of which funds roads (anybody's guess is to how much). Almost 41% of our tag fees are directed specifically to non-highway uses. Insane.

Read about it here.

And who knows how much of the less than 1%, the 16%, and road's portion of the 43% actually goes to the roads?

I believe this was the tip of the iceberg.
