Then how come I-10 in TX goes up to exit 880?

Good question.

Exit 880 happens to be the the Sabine River Turnaround.

The descrepancy probably comes from the fact that the certified miles of I-10 (878.6) doesn't include the 2 mile multiplex with I-35.

Google Maps says 880 miles total (rounding to nearest 1).  It's just over a mile from Exit 878 to the border.  I could certainly believe Wikipedia is wrong.  But the multiplex is 2.2 miles, which does suggest 881 as the correct overall length.  No idea how to rectify this.  Good thing this is only mini-trivia!

doesn't it also go down to exit 00 in El Paso, or is that another route that I'm confusing it with?

There is an Exit 0 on I-10. It is for the town of Anthony, which strattles the Texas/New Nexico Border.

where's the 00 then?  I swear it's in Texas somewhere - they had an exit 0 and then they extended the road slightly, and put in one more exit ...

The Exit 00 is in another thread.  One road begins at Exit 0.  Another road begins right away from that road and has its own Exit 0.  To avoid confusion, it became 00.  I want to say Oklahoma though.  Check the topics.
