so what's the general consensus up there, was it worth all the trouble/billions?
big dig = biggest corruption filled mess of all time.

road conditions are pathetic here, not that we like it but we expect it.

every time i go through the tunnel and come out the other side i feel like i accomplished something ... i lived.

Sounds like yall have way more road problems up north. Only time the roads around me suck are when the city decides to lay water pipe under them. They've fixed them up good every time though!

in my town the highway department dumps asphalt on potholes and just runs it over a few times to pack it down. My mud terrains used to destroy the fresh asphalt.

It's not even that bad i was on it a week and a half ago cruising at 70 and i was fine. maybe you shocks are shot his too lol. My truck did it just fine yea it was choppy but i just blast over that ****.

LOL mud terrains on fresh patches no more patch

ya but around halifax the entire road was washed away, the area around mount snow lost alot of businesses as in the buildings went in the river!!! route 9 was closed for like a month after that...they had the national gaurd down here telling us second home owners to get the hell out their state hahaha.


My shocks are brand new though...but im in the process of hoarding parts for a front end rebuild....just got a moog control arm for 18 $.......so ill drive that beast again when i get the new parts installed. I also have the bad habit of driving with only one finger hooked in the steering wheel...so ive got to cut that crap out. Anyways be safe guys!

no one-finger driving here. minimum is the pointer-middle-thumb-claw on the horizontal part of the wheel method.

i mean, the roads are pretty bad i agree. ive never been thrown into another lane tho. and im always travelling at 75+.. not sure how you went into another lane at 50.. i drive from maine to pennsylvania pretty regularly and im inclined to say that the worst roads are either in ct or the stretch of 84 i hit in pa. im on 84, 90, and 495, and theyre pretty tame for me in all honesty. the maine turnpike isnt even really that bad. now if were talking about city roads then yeah those are bad. but still

Im not sure how it happened either but it did, both to me and the chevy. It was also windy as hell out at the time, tho im not sure that had anything to do with it. Keep in mind im not talking about every road in the northeast, just 91 in this specific spot, real patchy coming out of the city, made my back end hop around like a bunny on crack. I drove 500 miles that trip and it was the only time it happened. What shocks are you running that makes these crappy roads so tame for you??
