In Columbus…I-74 is a joke

Well, I made it out of Peoria ok; but…

1. Between Peoria and the Indiana state line, traffic was shunted to a single lane on 5 different segments. Ok, one was some sort of accident just past Morton…though there was a disabled vehicle on the left side of the road, and about .25 miles further up, on the right side.

2. Between the Indiana State line and Indianapolis, single lane traffic on 2 different occasions.

3. Then on I-70: orange barrels and concrete walls galore, but no single lane stuff.

The irritating thing about I-74 is that the stuff around Morton has been going on since fall of 2013.

4. Going through Dayton; there was a jam going the other way and I counted 100+ semi rigs in the space of well less than 1 mile. It was as if there was a factory outlet nearby.

But I made it to Columbus and hope to make it in to Berea, OH by 11 am or so.
