Part of the problem is that big rig trucks seem to think that they don't have to use an alternate route when there are posted high wind warnings, and the NHP doesn't have enough manpower to police it. I've seen it far too often.

That seems to be a trouble spot on that highway. Might be worth having the designers re-think it to see if there's a way to make that particular area safer.
