Illinois-Indiana Road Clearing Differences

NW Indiana was a bear getting out. I-80 had both direction entrances blocked @ exit 2 (northbound) by trucks on the ramps. By contrast, Illinois had their territory immaculate.

You'd think it was Indiana on the road to bankruptcy skimping on road clearing.

But that's not the way it is in reality. The immaculate roads were just another sign of irresponsible spending for the few cars that were venturing out on the road. Indiana's "good enough" efforts were more calibrated spending trying not to exceed available revenues.

The failure mode when the money runs out is going to be devastating.
