Who is the controlling authority for this area of highway? I need to unload my rage on how bad this stretch of road is with a boat, camper etc... So violent my trailer came off the ball.

Its without question the worst stretch of road I have encountered over the 1000's of miles I've put on this set up. And its right in my back yard.

I am now stuck spending a chitload on new chains, wiring, bow stop etc...cause of this GDANG road.

Who do I contact to express my opinion?

There’s a TXDOT office in Sherman. But like any govt agency the wheels turn real slow on a local level. You need to start there but may also need to bark up the regional or district tree in Dallas. The more you squawk the faster your results.

Ironic that it was Eisenhower that initiated the interstate highway system and the worst stretch of it in Texas runs through his birthplace.

I did drive that way to go see my niece in Durant, but it'll bounce you all over the road even if you're not towing anything. I go 35 now and then cut east around Marietta.

call the county inspectors office and ask to file a complaint. they may not be the right folks but they will sure know who is.

try state office for Txdot in austin, they will have someone over the project.

I had to drag the champion over that mess both ways for the last gtg. it was easily the worst road I have ever driven on towing or not, towing made it suck that much more.

Contact TxDot, find out who the area Engineer is, as that is whom is over the local office. The next step in the escalation ladder Would be the district Engineer in the district office and lastly Austin.

Squeaky wheel gets the grease. Hope you find the right governing body because that stretch sucks.

It will not be easily corrected. The black clay soil has such a shrink/swell capacity that it takes a major effort to construct so it will not have the wavy topography. Can be done, but it is expensive and high maintenance. Good luck.

We ran into town from the lake Saturday, that stretch of road sucks, my wife made a comment that this road is the sorriest road in Texas.
