Default New Jersey Turnpike is #1

Yes, indeed Tony pulling the ticket on the entrance to the NJT - one more vote for the ugliest road from the exit 12 Linden refinery (feel the smell, but we still got the cheapest gas in USA) , Newark airport and sea port, Eastern and Western split after exit 14 till the end exit 18 (Lincoln Tunnel to NYC or Route 3 to Giants Stadium) .

Where are all the Michigan people? This thread is our chance to vote for the Seney stretch- 28 miles of absolutely straight, perfectly flat highway in the UP without a stoplight or blinker to break the monotony. And not much to look at along the side of the road either. Traveling at the speed limit, it feels like it a day and a half crammed into those thirty minutes. The UP could greatly increase its economic outlook if they could just figure out how to use the Seney stretch as a cure for insomnia. Better get the folks at Pfizer and Merck and Astra Zeneca working on that one. No harmful side effects, unless you happen to be the one the wheel!

I-40 between Gallup, NM and Flagstaff, AZ. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. I dread that stretch of road. And I-55 between Chicago and Springfield, IL is horrible, too. Nothing but cornfields and as flat as a tabletop.

Right now, since we're talking solely about roads here, the worst that I've seen so far is I-40 just west of Downtown Oklahoma City. It has outlived its purpose, as the long, elevated bridge is falling apart, and is slated to be replaced by a new alignment just to the south of that location.

I would vote for the NJ Turnpike too but also the freeways in TX are pretty bad in the cities. Do they have no standards? They never met a billboard they didn't like and their access road system is very ugly.
I would rather look at boring - like corn fields or desert or something natural then ugly factories, buildings or billboards.

I would have to say any where around Boston ;Mass.At the time I traveled thru there was only one decent highway and that was the interstate. Forget traveling i nthe cities becasue it has some very narrow cart paths paved over as streets . Want to park ;well there are no parking signs everywhere and all those places filled with cars parked half on the street and the other half on the sidewalk. Take the wrong road and you may end up going in a square patterned that is like a maze and end in the center.Don't ask directs from a local as they might shoot you the finger and or look like you might have assauted them.
