    You have to pay more to use the turnpike and this continues. Yet another reason to abolish all lazy union workers. You would think after the last time this happened they would make sure the pay road was safe. Insurance companies should start sueing state governmenrts for their loss.

      Ah yes. We all know the union makes the decisions on when to service the road. Management has no say in when to do it. Get real.

    Too bad people don’t pay attention to temperatures and weather reports and adjust their driving speeds so that they can stop. Having driven on those roads in that area before, I recall normal speeds exceeding the limit by 20 mph, just like US-30 from York to Lancaster.
