Houston... BIG city... good advice!

Recently, we traveled I-10 west through many fine and large cities. But, I took advice from the "panel of experts" on this site and went through Houston on a Sunday morning at 8:00am. Got through this sprawling and BIG city at the posted speed limit with relatively light traffic in about 40 minutes! Wow.. this is a big city with MAJOR highways. I counted as many as nine (9) lanes wide on my side alone at times. I can only imagine what rush hour may be like.

Anyway, early Sunday morning is good travel advice for any large city.

BTW - I'm always impressed with the absolutely beautiful civil engineering and aesthetic SW design themes on the bridge works in the southern states.... stunning!

Glad your passing was without issue. 40 minutes to cross Houston is excellent time. As for i10 i believe it is 26lanes now and at rush hour it is stop and go!

If it's aesthetics you're after, wait'll you hit the "High 5" in Dallas! (I-635 & U.S. 75/North Central Expressway)

Also "The Big 'I'" at I-25 & I-40 in Albuquerque is beautiful with its sand and aquamarine color scheme!

Fair winds and following seas, Shugahz!

Thanks for the Dallas "high 5" tip! I may be passing there in a few months. Agree about the Albuquerque structures. Absolutely stunning!
