We've talked about crappy roadways before, but only segments.  What interstate, as a whole, is the most substandard?

Reading comprehension is obviously not a thing on this forum, as I've seen plenty of responses similar to "I-9999 between Turkey Trot and Bean Blossom."

In my experience, I'd have to say I-83.

Then I nominate I-19. Due to metric signage which is very unamerican and therefore substandard.

Hummel Ave in Lemoyne, PA is stuck between two Norfolk Southern lines.  The light at 18th St/17th St always gets backed up in rush hour because of the limited space over the bridge between Hummel and State on 17th.  Plus, a lot of traffic goes between 18th St and 17th St, using Hummel for a very short distance.

i5 has had constant construction on it for the past year, so all the signs are wonky at any time.

I-676 is pretty substandard if the PA and NJ sections are considered one interstate.  The section around Franklin Square uses surface streets.

As far as two-digit Interstates go, I also vote I-83.  Unfortunately my home state of Pennsylvania is an embarrassment here, and I-83 inside the Baltimore Beltway is also not great.

Harrisburg International Airport (MDT) has the Airport Connector (SR 3032) that is a 55-mph freeway with 2 exits connecting to PA 283.  PA 283 is a 65-mph freeway that connects to I-283 and I-76/PA Tpk at its western end and the US 30 freeway in Lancaster at its eastern end. 

Local traffic can access from PA 230 either by using the interchange with the Airport Connector, or using Airport Drive from PA 441 Truck.

The Airport Connector is one of my favorite PA freeways, because it still has text based BGSs in some places.  Also, going southbound, one gets a straight on look at Three Mile Island.

Are the hatch/chevron markings along the left edge of one-way roads allowed to be white?


Sometimes NYC streets have white marking on the left of a one way street. Up until a couple of years ago, painted reservations had white hatchind.

I've seen painted central reservations with white-only markings exactly once: Pennsylvania Ave in DC, between 15 and 3 St SW: https://goo.gl/NN3TRf -- no idea why they did this.

Are the hatch/chevron markings along the left edge of one-way roads allowed to be white?


Nope, not supposed to be white.

Didn't think so. I thought that, maybe, there was an exception for one-way roads not part of a divided highway system, but I guess not.

FYI, Oregon should probably be changed over to yellow (Uses FHWA; Clearview seen at municipal level).  Portland is all aboard the Clearview train, at least with the blade signs, and weirdly enough, I've recently been seeing ODOT use it (contrary to how it had been approved) in all caps on orange construction signs.
