worst U.S. interstates, due to terrain

Jump to last reply

what are some of the worst sections of u.s. interstates due to geographical terrain?

one of the worst ive been on is I-17 going south from flagstaff into phoenix. you start out in flagstaff, at around an elevation of more than 4,000 ft., and within the course of around 2 hrs, you arrive in phoenix, some 3,000 feet lower.

so, as youre imagining this (or being painfully reminded), its chock full of turns here and there, and loaded with signs indicating 7% grade going lower, and lower, and lower.

going from phoenix to flagstaff via an alternative route which parallels I-17 and that takes you through sedona and the coconino national forest is even worse. (not an interstate, mind you)

anyone know of a worse stretch of road?
