US 101 maintenance (#1037)
Far too much of this trip up the NW coast was on roads with significant repair. It's good that we're spending money on infrastructure, but it really makes traffic much worse. Almost every hour I'd encounter a section that was one lane and flag man controlled due to maintenance. Since it was summer and a fair number of travelers, that would mean that traffic would get backed up into long lines of 50 or more cars waiting their turn to go through the one way section. The consequent grouping resulted in long sections of heavy congestion, but if you were lucky and missed getting caught in a group, there would be pleasant open road.
