No, not the Discovery Center. I am talking about the weed place on highway 24. The offices that control obnoxious weeds.
Here’s the problem.  If you are heading north on that highway, just outside of Manhattan, there is a passing lane.  The speed limit is 65. Signs instruct you to stay to the right unless you are passing.  The problem with that is the passing lane is also the left hand turn lane into the weed place.  So, you speed up and get in the passing lane to go by the codger driving 45 and suddenly find yourself behind a stopped truck which is turning left into the weed complex. The codger cruises by on the right while you stop in the passing lane, or, you veer to the right to avoid rear-ending the truck that has stopped in the passing lane and cream the codger.  This is a dangerous little stretch of road. Another DOT screw-up.
