Can't say about current conditions, but recall years ago when we went thru there to see Judge Roy Bean's saloon and visit the Indian Reservations going out to Grand Canyon and the petrified forest...
Back then it was a two lane normal Texas road (which means good) BUT, I do recall there were no shoulders on that particular road through the sands
If memory serves there were nice vista on the east to west roads that look like the grand canyon to the north - georgeous !
