South Texas I

Home » On The Road » South Texas I

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.

Accurate sign.

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.

    “Yes, I-37 ends at a traffic signal.”

    So does I-35. There is a (very preliminary) proposal to build a Laredo-Brownsville freeway along the US 83 corridor, but I’d be surprised if I-35 ends up being extended (or more likely rerouted) along it.

    yep, 35 ends at a traffic light too. those photos will be in the next batch – I drove 83 through that precise segment on the second day of this trip.
