Because of so much destruction during the Nether War, the road is sparse used and full of rogue settlements.The post war port network also reduced the traffic.
The road was built before the zombie war and was heavily travelled this is part of how Travill was named. It was a crucial last stop before the long journey.
Ever since the road was removed from House Donao maintenance it has become more run down. The little upkeep that happens is done by Nomad Nihmrod. He has proudly named the first house (north of Travill) Nomad's stable, this rolls of irony sine a nomad would not have a permanent stable. The irony continues with the house having barely room for a bed and a lone fence post for any horses.
