Some photos from a trip to south Texas, February 2009.
One of the oldest signs in Texas. Mid-70s or so. How it has survived, I will never know.
Austin, which is where I flew into. The newer Texas Toll Road shields have Clearview for the number – here is one that mercifully does not.
Texas has quite a few business loop 35s.
Texas unfortunately neuters their business loop shields on occasion, too.
Not a very good excuse for a Ranch to Market shield.
Do not attempt to cross the old bridge in Waco.
Texas likes its one-piece business route shields.
Heading out of Waco on an old alignment of US-77.
Old US-77 turns into a dirt road to serve a few farms.
Somewhere in a construction zone near the split into 35E and 35W.
This temporary assembly, featuring state-named 35E and 35W shields, is long gone.
Back down to highway 84.
Park Road shields resemble those for state routes and loop roads.
San Antonio. We now take I-37 from beginning to end.
A Valero refinery near Three Rivers.
In George West. (There is no George East.)
Just about the very last I-37 green sign.
Yes, I-37 ends at a traffic signal.
Quite a few of these left in the Corpus Christi area.
