    If this where I believe it is, that section of the I 80 is like a mine field and could easily cause a broken axle, I live there and will not drive on it.

    This is an example of how careless the trucking companies are across the USA! If you knew the poor condition of these huge truck you would NEVER drive on the highways! With the huge number of warehouses in NEPA the truck volume is getting bigger and much more dangerous, especially on I-80 and I-81!
