Yup, because we pay other states to build nice ones, thanks to our lovely relationship with the federal government.

I would think it would a northern state with lots of ice and bad winter conditions. All the salt and cold and extreme heat of the mid-west throughout the year can't be good for roads.

I've been all over the US and the worst roads I've ever driven on were in NYC. It seems like their maintenance crews just can't keep up.

and about California, I don't think the roads there are bad at all. The only thing I don't like about California roads are the cement grooved freeways. I hate those because it makes the steering wheel move around in your hands and tracking difficult.

For what it's worth, Minnesota also has bad roads. Some of our lakes are actually potholes that haven't been filled yet.

the stretches of road that are comprised of completely new sections of road are excellent.

its only when they repair the roads in patches that things keep getting messed up.

How are California's freeways bad? We have bad traffic yes. But not bad freeways.

Agreed... Cali roads are nothing compared to some places I've seen in the upper midwest, NYC, etc...

New York highways are really bad. Even Fidel Castro said the roads in Cuba are better
