Great thread Redneck.
In traveling in the western US, over the last three years I have noticed what once was level roads now have a lot of damage, cracks even where the
road surface is only months old. These are not pot-holes but dips and humps forming in the roads that were not there before. In many places if you
drive the speed limit or faster it will beat you to death, rapid ups and downs and causes real problems with suspension systems and alignment. In some
places rocks and huge boulders fall onto the highways constantly. Heck in some places the road is tilting so far left or right that you have to fight
with the steering wheel to keep a vehicle on the road.... The thing that bothers me is that three years ago these same roads and highways were not
like this.. It has become a never ending project for road crews, but in many places where they dig up the road and re-level it before adding a new
surface, within relatively short time it gets the same damned unevenness... Now it is happening in the south, in Mississippi and Louisiana, drive I-20
across there some time and see how "lumpy" the highways are getting, even after extensive work has been done on it... In a lot of places in the west
they just put up signs now that say things like "Road damage next 20 miles"
Maybe this is normal, but from what I have seen over the past three years, especially in the west, I believe something dynamic is going on deep down
in the earth, sure a little movement would be normal, but in places this is not just a little, it is a lot, and at times roadways have been shut down
so they could fill in the dip in the road and put asphalt on it.
Regardless I have learned from this that the earth is moving in places constantly with or without major earthquakes.
When you run the same roads a lot, you can see these changes over time.
