Isn't it funny how some people think it's horrible because it's boring and some people think it's wonderful because it's boring? LOL

The most boring stretch of 16 is the part stretching from Emanuel, Candler, and Bulloch Counties. There is almost nothing in these counties. It is also the very last part of 16 to be erected (anyone here old enough to remember this?), so I think that has a lot to do with the lack of gas stations on the off ramps.

16 is so boring because it follows a path along the rural breadbasket of Georgia, and 16 is a relatively new interstate; there hasn't been a lot of time for the interstate to have an economic impact on the counties it flows through.

I've driven i-70 through Missouri and Kansas, and I have to say that it is FAR worse than i-16 on the boring scale. It's much longer and the small towns it passes through are even worse than the ones in Georgia (porn shops also litter the offramps, something you won't find in GA). Actually, almost every interstate in the midwest is worse than i-16.

With so many fun things one can do while they drive nowadays, how can anyone be bored?



I haven't been on 16 in about 8 or 9 years but I seem to remember there was a very bumpy concrete section. I don't know why so many highways are being paved with concrete now it's so bumpy and it gets so slick.

I love I-16. Unlike that horrible segment of I-75 between Macon and Atlanta, it is one stretch of road where I KNOW that I will not get into a traffic jam.

I like I-16. It's a wonderful interstate on which to "think" about what is going on in your life.

At night, it's pitch black, and displays vivid views of the stars. It's actually quite peaceful. Very few cars, by and large. It's a far cry from I-85 in northeast Georgia, which has the same amount of lanes and is relatively crowded.

Radio stations become minimal when you get around Soperton, located just far away from Macon, Vidalia, Statesboro, and Savannah. You can pick up a Dublin station or two, maybe one from Vidalia, and perhaps a few from Macon.

The think that will stick with me about I-16 were the container trucks. And all the exits built to be reversible in an evacuation scenario. Anyone know how many times its been implemented?
