Following up on the March 28 letter about the condition of the U.S. 219 “Close part of U.S. 219 until it is roadworthy”), I thought I would report on our recent trip to Cleveland.
Traveling to Cleveland and back I found it rather alarming that the worst roads experienced between Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York State were in New York State, the one state that was charging a toll to use its roads! There was one section of the thruway that even placed a warning of “rough roads ahead,” as if that would make the experience any better.
I suppose it is cheaper to post the sign than to repair the road. Overall it is an embarrassment to the state and a safety hazard to all who use such roads.
