I-20 going through Shreveport, LA. So bad, one of our basement doors popped open, and we lost a zero gravity chair. Fortunately, a guy pulled up along side us, and told us it had fallen out. Pulled over quickly, so we didn't lose anything else.
I-75 south of Detroit is pretty bad, too. Decided to get off the interstate and use side roads.

Rough roads.

Come on down to South Carolina. Not only are the roads awful, the state is going ultra low bid for millions of dollars worth of re-paving. Most of the 'new' pavement is worse than what they're covering up. If you haven't got rattles you will have.

Better get used to it; interstates conditions haven’t changed in the last 60 years except for a few blacktop sections. I’ve been on many of those mentioned here. My only recourse is to get the best shocks vs. OEM, maintain correct tire pressures, and slow down. That’s probably why truckers have air cushion seats. Very few of us know how state and national gas tax budgets are used and that’s part of the problem.
One of my pet peeves is matching the ramp to an overpass.

Not necessarily a rough road, but certainly a challenge to drive would be I80 in California, from the first chain control area to the Nevada state line. All the traffic with chains has worn down the right-hand lane to the point where there are "trenches" deep enough where it takes some serious effort to make a lane change - it's almost like you're driving a train on rails...

You can tell immediately when you cross the state line because the road surface improves to near perfection!

So are all of the States taking the gas taxes and or toll taxes and using them for other things like they do in California. Sounds like it from reading this thread. They just raised the gas tax AGAIN in California to pay to fix the roads.
Just heard that raised amount is not going towards fixing the roads, it's going to other items instead. GOOD GRIEF!

Every road gets rough.... until they fix it. It's certainly not worth avoiding. Just GO! If you get off the interstates the areas can be better and more interesting things to see.

My vote goes to I-10 from Baton Rouge, LA to Orange, TX! Especially the sections (a) from Sulphur, LA to I-210 around Lake Charles, LA; and (b) from Orange, TX to the LA/TX state line. I've just had to replace a couple of broken leaf springs on my Fuzion 420 toy hauler. I'll start existing at Vidor, TX and take LA 12/US 190 across to Kenner, LA, since I usually go up US 165 to Alexandria, LA instead of constantly tearing my trailer up by taking I-10 across to exit #44 in LA.
