Thanks for the update. I usually get off at Columbus to head up to Austin when westbound. Making the run in mid December . Will probably close my eyes and just see what route the moho takes after Louisiana.

We made a quick decision to not use Grand Parkway/99 Toll road because of the added distance. Knowing what I know now I would take the toll road were I to go that way again.

In a year or two the construction will be more complete and all may be fine. So who knows.

The was one place that had a lane shift, no shoulder “Jersey Barriers” on either side of the road, two lanes wide AND a pavement change from asphalt to concrete diagonally across the lane shift that actually tossed my motorhome from the right lane into the left lane violently... uncontrollably. Luckily there was no one in the left lane at the time. There were at least three places where the temporary roadway was so broken and poorly matched to the road that I worried about physical damage to either my motorhome or my toad. I couldn’t imagine responsible people thinking that it had been sensibly implemented for even temporarily use.

Thanks to everyone who has responded to my question about the Grand Parkway/99 toll road. In answer to the person who wondered why we would even think about going that way from Wisconsin, the answer is we like to get as far south the quickest we can because of possible weather conditions in late November. We normally get to Texarkana TX, head off to Marshall and then Henderson and over to Rockdale. This year I do believe we will go to Texarkana and then south on 59 to the toll road (99/Grand Parkway) and around Houston. We will avoid the hill at La Grange and also the low overpass in Schulenburg both of which we could avoid by going around them I think but we just thought we'd try this for a change of pace. We do prefer 4 lane roads to the two lane variety and after calculating it there isn't a lot of difference in the mileage, perhaps a little further, but probably quicker. I'll report back after we make the trip and give you our thought. Safe travels to everyone who may be heading out soon heading for warmer climates!
