Thumbs up I-10

We just arrived in Stafford Texas and traveled I-10 West from Jacksonville, Florida. The Interstate has been very smooth except for about 30 miles a couple hours West of New Orleans. The road was a bit bumpy, but nothing teeth shattering. Several areas with new surface and smooth as silk.

All of the I-10, (from Jacksonville to Los Angeles), is in good shape, (except for that stretch in LOUSYanna).

...and it's rough in Louisiana because the road is built over swamps.

Watch Out For Two Spots

The only two places I have to really be careful with on Texas' Interstate 10 is (going Westbound) from the Sabine River bridge (the State Line) through most of Orange and the Veteran's Memorial Bridge (Neches River) coming into Beaumont. Going in either direction on Interstate 10 East of Houston, be sure to pay attention to the flashing signs if they say Interstate 10 is closed in Beaumont. Whatever you do, follow the directions because I've seen wrecks on the Veteran's Memorial Bridge stop traffic for more than eight hours. Don't ask me why. I was a traffic cop in Beaumont in the early 70's and when we had a wreck on that bridge, we cleared it in half an hour ... even fatality accidents.

We have been traveling I-10 Westbound from Jacksonville as far as Van Horn, TX for the past three weeks or so. As noted, the worst sections were in LA from Baton Rouge thru Lafayette. There are some pretty rough sections west of Fort Stockton (they have ground off the surface prepping for resurfacing). The worst issue was the punishing wind SW wind yesterday. Driving from Fort Stockton to Van Horn was an adventure, even in a fairly heavy tag axle coach. Wind was gusting to 60-70 mph when we arrived in Van Horn .

We've been on I-10 from I-75 to Tucson over the last few weeks. Other than the bumpity bump in Louisiana, the only issues was some construction in New Mexico and Arizona. No big delays.

Oh - almost forgot the Border Patrol stop west of El Paso. Also, the GPS took us on a bypass around El Paso. Probably added 45 minutes to the trip.

We're going to continue on 10 to Quartzsite and CA toward the end of February.
