Boy, we had some nasty ones on a couple of county roads near me. Kudos to the state for get them repaired in a timely manner. (y) I learned that even though they're designated as county roads, they're considered to be "major collectors " for the interstate, so the state maintains them. They do a nice job, too!
There's a road district tax renewal in the ballot tomorrow. I generally vote no on extra taxes, but I'll vote to pay extra to have good roads.(y)
Yeah, we had one on I-287 that was taking out cars. There were somewhere around 50 tires flattened and rims bent or cracked before they got it flagged and closed to a single lane. Luckily it was when it was very very cold and no motorcyclist were out riding or there might have been a dead one or at least hospitalized. I have no idea how it got that way so fast. I suspect a boring machine left a cavity that collapsed because this hole happened fast. I had been in the lane just the day before and it was fine. Something, maybe not a boring machine but something under the road collapsed. The patch they put in is huge. At least 2 car lengths. And why not the other lane? Or maybe it will be next? Oh well, can't get a picture of it anyway. Too busy.

It's amazing how fast some of them open up. I saw a bad one on the ramp from the interstate going into the airport today. I noticed a new pothole yesterday, it was about 8" round, the loose gravel just happened to catch my eye. . 24 hours later, the whole section between the lanes collapsed. it's about 2 feet wide, 6 inches deep, and 15 feet long! Heavy truck traffic will do that, there is gravel all over of ouorse, and chunks of asphalt, it's a real mess.
Fortunately it's in between the lanes, but woe to anyone who tries a quick lane change there!
No way I can get a picture of this one, it's a deadly spot.

Ah just barely beat me to it Roger! I'll post mine for kicks 😅 had to turn around early because I noticed the rear was getting squirrely. Stopped and it was down to about 6 PSI, checked it before I left and it was running about 20-22 🤷‍♂️ just got new tires delivered a few days ago so now it's time to get some quality spooning. I brought spoons and a spare tube in case but was only about 15 miles from the house and had my new mini tire pump and stopped twice to air it up. Stopped by bike shop and picked up a new spare tube too.
