Engineering wise.....(no pun intended) the intersection of 380 and 287 has to be the worst intersection of two major highways in the state of Texas.Double Fake Highway Men
I came up on this truck soon after it happened when they were first blocking off the highway. I'm very glad no one was hurt...that's a terrible and poorly planned out on-ramp.
Wise County has the worst civil engineering in the State of Texas. Remember how many people died at the intersection of SH 114 and FM2123 before the untrained citizens told the local stupid TXDOT engineer that doing 55 mph in a eighteen wheeler loaded with rock on a curved downgrade with an intersection at the bottom of the hill was the reason people were dying. Maybe he enjoys the deaths.
Always blaming it on the "engineering" boogymen. More like Wise Countians can't drive in the rain. Or in any other type of weather, either.
Is Wyle E. Coyote our area TXDOT engineer? What's next, a giant catapult across Lake Bridgeport or a tunnel painted on the side of Decatur Hill?
I agree! Wise County TXDOT engineers are horrible. How many people's death are they responsible for?
I vote for the problem being bad drivers. Just slow down & think!Oh, yeah...GET OFF THOSE PHONES!!!!
Two different ways to stop the accidents at 380 and 287: (1) redesign and reconstruct the intersection or (2) reduce and enforce the speed limit. Neither will get done in Wise County.
There is another intersection that qualifies the Wise County TXDOT engineer for the stupid file. Entering Wise County on SH 114 traveling westbound a few miles east of Rhome the speed limit is increased to 70 mph. Within a few hundred feet of the speed limit increase there is a red light for traffic from a large subdivision turning onto SH 114? Who in the hell increases the speed limit just as traffic comes upon a red light? And where else in North Central Texas is there a red light in a 70 mph zone?
Let me clear something up before people start to misunderstand something. The roads in question are State roads and have nothing to do with Wise County Government.I believe that the above bloggers understand this, but I wanted to make sure that it is not misunderstood.
Why would any good God-fearing Wise County Republican use public roads for transportation? Aren't those socialist?Either way, less Wise County residents in this world is a good thing. Good work, TxDOT!
Why would any good God-fearing Wise County Democrat use public roads for transportation? Aren't those elitist?
