I don't believe there's anything on the other side.

610 and the Beltway (8) can both be a pain. The beltway swings out too far to be worth the cost to me, and 610 is a booger nearly all day these days, especially on weekends.
I might have already mentioned this in a previous post, but IF you do take one of the loops/beltway, ALWAYS go south, not north, around Houston. North is where 290 is, that she is talking about here.

There is tons of construction on the north side, and lots of traffic. Houston has already spread north, so it is congested. It is now starting to spread south, so not as much traffic or congestion.

Of course, an accident or high-speed chase on the south side at any time, and this logic goes right out the window.

I always pull up the google maps on my cell phone before i go through or into Houston, just to see where the traffic is flowing and go that way. So, for example, I had 4 different paths I could take to get to work, and each was within 5 miles distance from all the others. But traffic could add an hour. I worked 60 miles from home.
