James Blesser writes in the July 2 Gazette of the terrible condition of I-88.
I agree that on certain sections of the route from Albany to Binghamton, some sections have been repaired and replaced, making for a smooth ride on those sections.
On the other sections, before Oneonta, we have noticed the locals — determinable by the fact that they exit along the route — travel in the passing lane, some moving over to the right lane when a car approaches from behind, some not.
We travel frequently to Hershey, Pa., from Albany and have done likewise to greater ride satisfaction than staying in the right lane.
While not completely free from constant roughness and bumpiness, the left, passing lane, is the better alternative.
