They just finished a long section of I-35 in the Oklahoma City metro area. It was not really that bad before the construction. It was all concrete, so they would pull up huge blocks of concrete, and stack them on the side of the road. I had a few occasions to watch as the construction pulled the three lanes into just one and was rather slow.
Anyway eventually all the old concrete was pulled up, and new slabs put in. It was so bumpy it was impossible to the the 70 MPH speed limit along there. Big rigs slowed down to 50. So the "fix" was worse by far than the old road. Evidently they planned it that way, ans the next step was to diamond grind all three lanes. After that, and a lots of time, the road is now smooth and has great drainage with long groves on the road that help the drainage.
