I HATE running 10 so much. Between the ridiculous distance through Texas, and the stretches that will knock fillings out by the time you're done with it you're so frustrated it's not funny.
From a purely economic standpoint it's a great road. The reality is that it's in such piss poor condition that it isn't even funny.
The bridge had a "sufficiency rating" of 91.5 out of 100, higher than dozens of other interstate bridges, according to the Federal Highway Administration. Yet as recently as 2013, the bridge was listed as "functionally obsolete" — inadequate for its task, but not unsafe and without known structural problems that needed to be fixed. The classification often means that a bridge is either too small or poorly suited for modern-day traffic

Weight of traffic, heavily loaded trucks along with poorly maintained bridge. The drought and damaged pilings...That's how. CalTrans is not credible when it comes to facts. Or maintanence.
