WIDE CRACK DRIVE (Rt 66 nr Carlinville IL)

WIDE CRACK DRIVE (Rt 66 nr Carlinville IL)

This play on words is courtesy of the late great Pontiac. During their heyday, Pontiacs had a wider stance than other cars, hence: Wide Track. The loop road around Pontiac MI was even named Wide Track Drive.

Here, Wide Cracks are the result of too many freeze/thaw cycles. And not enough road-building experience by the people who laid this down in one long slab, without now-familiar center or lateral expansion joints. Nature eventually provided her own.

The off-center yellow stripe is from a practice run, or maintenance on striping equipment.
