A lot of the time when It starts to get dark ( In the Fall) and temperature starts to drop, Snakes will crawl out on the pavement in order to "Warm Up"

It's pretty common to find rattlers in the road, right at dusk in certain parts around here.

When rattlesnakes go to den up, they will follow each other in single file. I've sat on back roads and killed many snakes that always cross it in the same place. I don't know if they lay down a scent trail or what? weather really has not been cool enough yet to cause them to Go underground.

Snakes are like spiders... best enjoyed when flattened.

So they were heading east huh? My guess is that they were trying to get away from the sun for some reason. Boy are they gonna be pissed come morning!

On a more serious note:

That is quite odd. I have never seen anything like that. If you witness any other odd animal behaviour I would suggest going the same direction they are because they probably know something you don't.

When I was a kid in TX we used to occasionally see tarantulas crossing the road in groups. I especially remember cause once in a while Dad would stop, pick one up, and hold it to the passenger side window in front of Mom. Dad would be laughing and Mom would be screaming.

Must be where I learned some of the finer points on how to get along with Mrs. NMSight

Haven't seen anything like that on open road but in & near water, cottonmouths "school" at certain times of the year. Glad someone came up with the explanation.

Perhaps they were going to vote early, lest they be disenfranchised.
