I-40 Makes List of Bad Roads

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Truckers participating in a magazine survey said Interstate 40 through Oklahoma City is one of the worst roads in America.

Parade magazine polled drivers with a Tennessee-based trucking company.

They say I-40 is rough and potholed.

Driver Paul Griesbach said Oklahoma has the roughest stretch of the highway, and said driving it was like riding on a washboard.

State Transportation Department spokeswoman Brenda Perry said the state will use money from the federal economic stimulus package to do some work on the west end of I-40.

Oklahoma is expected to receive about $340 million to be used for road and bridge projects. Officials are planning $72 million worth of improvements on I-40, using stimulus funds to start those projects this summer.
