Taco I would have to disagree with your assessment of PA road conditions compared to other states. According to Statemaster dot com, (a statistical database website) PA ranks 5th in the nation for the number of roads classified in the fair and poor categories.

Hahaha, I thought the Hawbaker slush fund was 15 between the split & Trout Run!
Yep, another year that the world will look in upon Lycoming county for the LLWS and 180 and 15 are under repair yet again. Why can't these things be done in the spring? (I understand that 15 has been ongoing for years and looks like it will be more years before they get done!) And, as for 180 needing yearly work, it is almost like a slush fund for Hawbaker, isn't it?

Let me tell you, taco. The major hubs have service roads, since 180 around montoursville is always down, their should be a better way than trying to go through downtown montoursville. That part is always down for repair, mva, the snowplow opens only one lane, etc. but, you go right ahead and poo-poo me, since you seem to be cynical.
radioactive, service roads next to the highways in Texas? Tell me how these service roads circumnavigate bridges? And how do they work in the mountainous regions of Texas? I'm not saying Penndot is full of brainiacs, but I'm pretty sure your concept is poorly thought out in its application to Pennsylvania's geography. Also, having traveled throughout this country, I can tell you that Pennsylvania's roads are not even in the lower quarter in condition.
Every year 180 needs major repairs. Every year traffic is backed up through montoursville. In texas they have service roads next to the highways to avoid these tie ups. Perhaps SG could do an investigative piece on why only our roads are so stinky-never mind, it's about that time when they ostracize loyalsock for using psp as police protection.
I see the article ends that it's "scheduled" to be back to normal by LLWS week. Well, the best laid plans... Hopefully.
How long is this work going to last? I only ask because it seems that lately every year right around LLWS 180 between Wpt. and the mall is down to one lane for some stretch. Isn't Lycoming Mall one of the big attractions touted to visitors for LLWS? Even if it's not pushed as an attraction, it's still our only mall, plus Target, etc. It seems silly that they would constrict traffic flow to the mall when we expect a whole lot of visitors to this area who may be looking for things to do. Of course PennDot planning has never made much sense.
