Can you please like stash away couple of hundred million and fix the fucking potholes in your roads? And I am looking at you too, Nashville, WTF?

And what kind of paint you guys used for the white road lines? Did it contain some sort of Bond villain acid that ate away the asphalt? ‘Cause in places and up to a quarter of a mile, nowhere else but in the fucking white stripes you get holes and deep ones to boot. And some places look like meth-heads decided to chip away about a thousand square feet of pavement in the middle of I-24 without being bounced around by trucks.

Back in Florida, half the DOT would have been gator feed by now if the roads were like here.

      1. The salt solution seeps into the seems between asphalt strips. That’s why they’re so prominent on lane boundaries — most asphalt is laid one lane wide.

        Welcome to a place with seasons.

      1. Of course when you have water pool under the pavement it freezes and expands which causes “frost heaves”.

        When the ice melts and the water takes up less volume the surface of the pavement degenerates and you get a pothole.

        With a nice spring rain, do NOT trust that a puddle is a puddle. It could be 6″ deep with vertical walls.

        Been there, done that (and got the t-shirt)

  1. Yes, things are harder in places with frost. You know the term “frost heaves”? If not, you will learn it soon enough.
    It could be worse. I live in NH on a dirt road. The standard line is that we have five seasons here, the extra one is “mud season” — around March and April, when the top layer melts but below is still frozen, so the road turns into quicksand. Right by our driveway we typically get ruts 6-10 inches deep. No fun when you drive a sedan. As for potholes: the town grades the road (after mud season is over, no point in doing it before), and the road is then smooth for a month or so. Like moguls on ski slopes, the potholes come back quickly.
    The one benefit of all this is that it keeps speeds down. Some fools still go 30 mph, but rarely faster than that.
