So far, I-40 seems to be the overall winner as the West's worst road, stretching from Arizona to Oklahoma, and points beyond.

You guys need to take I 278, The Brooklyn Queens expressway, before you decide. It switches from 2 to 3 lanes as it winds past the Brooklyn, Willimsburg Manhattan and Queensborough bridges. Some parts are evavated, some trenched and some stacked, under a park. Parts of the right lane are low clearance, and all narrow.
If you like a challenge, head to Brooklyn and hold on.

the left lane is smoother than the right in many places do to less 80K OTR trucks beating on it over the years. only certain sections are bad its not all bad.

Ocala to Sarasota Report

We took I75 exit 301 east to US301, then 301 south to I4, then I4 to I75. Easy trip, and most importantly the DW really enjoyed being off the Interstate. Going through Zephyrhills was really slow - seems we caught every light red. We traveled on Sunday, and I don't know if it would be that easy on a work day. We'll do it again in 2016, then hopefully they'll be done with I75 before our 2017 trip.

I took I-24 today from Nashville to Marion IL & I can't believe they let traffic in the right lane, it is unbelievable ! The overhead electronic signs say " Caution be aware of potholes "
I have to vote for this section of road as to being one of the Worst Roads in America. If you find yourself traveling this section of interstate stay in the left lane.

Worst road in America

Folks have often said "the worst road ever is (XXXX), and I will never use it again"!
But after they fix THAT road, I use it, and I have more room due to the "never will" folks.
Never say never!
The weather changes. Road take a little longer!
Don't miss em when they're fixed.

I just left Chicago going back to Florida, the last several trips I have taken I-57 to Marion then I-24 east.
It's a few more miles but away better road & not nearly the traffic. I quite going 65 when the construction on the bride in Louisville began & I sat in traffic for 2 hours.

Hwy 69/75 from Sherman, TX to Durant, OK over Lake Eufaula to 1-44. Read a report where a guy's 5th wheel buckled on that stretch. I believe it and have never returned to that route again.

I-10 through Louisiana is up there too.

We just completed a drive on I10 - from Pasadena, Ca to Jacksonville, Fl and I must say that other than maybe 5 miles through Texas, and maybe a mile in Louisiana, it is an EXCELLENT road! There were small sections in Texas that were rough, but they were short sections, totalling maybe 5 miles out of the 880+ miles total. And in Louisiana that was maybe a 1 mile section east of Slidell that had our motorhome undulating - the result of the spacing of the expansion joints in the concrete roadway.

We saw very few potholes, cracks, or other issues the entire way - I think I5 through California's Central Valley is a FAR worse ride.
