Another Reason for an East-West Highway in Northern New England

Picture of Route 4 in Vermont after Hurricane Irene

The picture above shows the condition of Route 4 in Vermont after the disastrous floods caused by Hurricane Irene. This kind of damage to a major east-west travel corridor points to another reason why Northern New England needs an east-west interstate–maintaining vehicular access after a natural disaster. An interstate-quality roadway is simply better designed to withstand the ill-effects of natural disasters.
