You would think they would improve considering that they're under continuous construction whenever I pass through.
One would think - but I've lived here my whole lift - SEPA area. What happens is - after 30-60 years of planning they start a project which is claimed to take 10 years - once the 10 years is up and they are still not done - they begin another section at the same time. Now - the original section will be "finished" - however the actual begining of that section now has taken on 10 years of abuse and needs repair. Same time this is happening the "new" project has already begun so the old new road which is now 10 years old and kinda done will get put on the back burner because it's "not that bad yet" because they just made the road. Get the picture? It's an endless loop of contruction and road damage.

If PA would just go back to having concrete roadways their system may actually work a bit better because the roads would last twice as long.....

Ever been to Boston?
A few times - learned my lesson - no-one can drive there - I stay away now. And if I have to pass through I don't do it during rush hour.... stupid shoulder lanes are f-ing scary!

PA can't even clear their shoulders for a break down spot more or less have it as a "traffic lane"

in order to drive in Boston without getting damage to your car, you need this -



PA roads are fine. Anyone who says the "average" PA road is bad has never been anywhere else. Feel free to look at the statistics. In comparison to the rest of the north-east, PA is actually very good.

What I dont get is that Wisconsin and Upper Michigan (my last two homes) have as bad or worse winters than here in Western/Central Massachusetts but yet our roads are 10x better.

I miss doing 55mph everywhere...

I think every road is fucked up. But so to say that in PA, where i live is bad. My friend lowerd his civic and the bottom is all fucked up from it banging and clanking all the time.

And the roads in jersey are smooth, alot of new ones i've seen the past few days.

Cant wait to go to FL.

I honestly think that anyone who is bitching about the perceived lack of road quality hasn't been somewhere that the roads are so terrible that this has to happen for them to be repaired:



And IceTea, be real. The reason your friend is encountering problems with a lowered Civic is because he was dumb enough to lower a car that's already low enough to the ground to have problems.
