Worst roads that you have driven on.

The worst roads we have been on were off-road with our Jeep; dirty, dusty, rocky, etc.
Most would call them awful, but we call them GREAT!
Warning: do not try them with your RV.

The southern section of 295 around Richmond is bad especially near the Narrows Bridge over the James River.

That thing is a mess and the repair jobs are rougher than the dirt by the side of the highway. Looking at the 99 as a better one.

Eastbound I-44 through downtown St. Louis, MO and I-70 through Illinois and Indiana. It was so rough, the dash came apart. On way back took I-71 from Columbus, OH to Louisville, KY and I-64 to bypass around St. Louis. When we go back in August will use I-64 and I-71 again.

We were on the Schafer Trail near Moab a few years ago when we saw what we thought was a dust storm in the distance. It kept getting farther away so we thought we'd follow it. Several miles down the trail we caught up with a caravan of film production equipment and a couple motorhomes. They were on their way to Thelma and Louise point to film a Budweiser commercial.

Both motorhomes were preceded by a truck with a winch mounted on the rear. Apparently they were having a hard time negotiating the terrain since they both had serious damage on the rear. I guess the production company wanted their staff to live in comfort even in a remote location.

Have driven a million + miles in my lifetime and saw lots of bad roads. The worst, by far, is the New York State Thruway, I90, east of Buffalo. The pavement is so bad it will rattle the teeth out of your head.

Much longer then the Cross Bronx but not as busted up. Be on that next week.
I haven't driven the BQE in years. But I remember the sudden right lane exit only feature!
Don't let the recent re-surfacing(3 years ago) of the Cross Bronx lure you in to highway speeds if you hit it with no traffic. Then again, hitting it with no traffic would be a miracle.

I took the MH thru the Cross Bronx, when it was milled, 3 years ago. I ran the center lane at 15 mph to miss the raised covers. I straddled the center ones. What a ride.

Yup, no traffic means Miricle or jack knife truck, right behind you.

Popular finger pointing promulgated by politicians. Fact is, if the highways were properly designed and built in the first place trucks would not be a problem.

And I will be mostly rolling down nice alternate roads until until then.
Most seem to suffer the bumps and complain, while others avoid them.
No offense intended, John. Hello to Lincoln

Rough Roads

Hwy 285 SSE from Carlsbad NM to Fort Stockton Tx at I-10.
The Trucks that provide service to the Oil Fields have beat the Hell out of that road, No shoulder and pot holes forever it seemed.
