That should shorten life expectancy of that road to about 5 years at most……if I was to use it regularly I’d travel by hovercraft – for when the rest of the tarmac fragments and disintegrates!

Our founding fathers never intended for ISTEA to become a wedge issue, transforming states into mere bureaucratic divisions of fedgov. End the transfer payments (which were destroyed by light rail, the Big Dig, …). Users must pay. Competition will lower prices. It will be difficult to undo public monopoly, but it must be done.
