Eisenhower State Park said it was puzzled by the “spaghetti” phenomena as the piles were only found in this exact park that was closed off to vehicles because of recent floods.

Earthworms come to the surface for three reasons . Mating, migration, and to escape predators .
What I believe you're looking at there is worm orgies .

my reasoning leads me to only one conclusion (after the mating comment by greathouse being probable and most likely)
that since roads are grated to a "peak" in the middle (in between the lines) so the location where the worms joined was the highest ground around. gonna look at a video to see if the berms of the ditches are higher than the middle of the road.

All I see is bait, and easy to get to bait at that. We have been having flooding here in Nebraska and I have seen similar behavior. Not quite as organized as the worm Frisbee in the middle of the road, but they are clumping. Snakes in the winter here in Nebraska do something similar. My dad ran a dirt moving company and would bulldoze out a ball of rattlesnakes. They were packed so tight and in the most perfect ball you have seen. He used to tell me this is how they tried to stay warm during hibernation.
