Nevada is second to last in the country when it comes to states with the most city roads in need of repair — implying just 8 percent of the state’s roads need work, according to the Washington Post, however what are the roads that require it most?
Washington, D.C., led the nation with “bad” roadways, with 92 percent and none rated “good” by the Federal Highway Administration. The only state with more roads in good shape than Nevada is Florida.
However not all of Las Vegas’ roads were created equal, and numerous of the city’s poorer roads and also a lot older.
We asked our Facebook fans for their input of roadway conditions in Las Vegas and got an overwhelming response for one stretch.
South Durango Drive from Tropicana Avenue to Desert Inn Roadway, a county road, is the road in a lot of requirement of repair service in the Las Vegas Valley, according to commenters.
“That is the worst stretch of roadway in the area,” John Hildebrandt commented.
“I cannot believe they haven’t fixed it yet. It just got worse after the last 2, 3 rain falls. This is a major street on the west side,” said Jason Yord.
“When I ride my motorcycle on it it feels like I’m about to get tossed off.” Curtis Raulerson said on Facebook.
While orange is the color of Nevada’s building period, locals in the area haven’t seen much effort to need to road fixed, at least not in a fast way.
