Default The worst roads in the country

We in Michigan have always thought we had the worst roads in the country and we now have the facts to back that up. See how your state ranks.

Interesting that they didn't include Alaska in their ratings. Happy to see that our little state ranked 6th.
Sorry about your roads, Dave. I hear the same complaint from NSX owners who live there.

Why are there only 37 states rated? Don't publish an article if you don't have complete data!

BTW, it is no surprise that Ohio is #4

I agree, David. Didn't realize until reading your post how incomplete this list was.

Yeah, I noticed that not all 50 states are included!

Yeah, Ohio, is #4, that is 4th from the bottom!

Mississippi is missing. And our highways are actually pretty good. There are issues up around Jackson due to the clay content of the soil which expands and contracts as it absorbs and releases water. But otherwise, the state does a good job of maintaining the highway system.

Dave, if you want to feel better about your Michigan roads, drive in New Orleans. If the list was based on worst city streets Louisiana would have quickly sunk to the bottom. Worst streets I've ever seen. Worse than NYC by a good bit.

Good catch. Hell, I knew we were the worst so I didn't worry about who else missed the party.

That is shocking especially since our roads are always being worked on in Delaware and they take forever to fix them. Delaware has been called the diamond state probably for all of the endless orange diamond shaped signs that say road under repair. I don't agree with their incomplete rankings.
