Howdy guys, CoreySamson here, and I'm really happy to be part of this forum.
I've been a geek about cars and roads ever since I was really young, so this is kind of a dream come true. I live in Houston and am watching the 288 toll lane expansion with interest.

Fun fact about me: Last year, before I got my drivers license, I drove the 130 tollway (yes, the 85 mph section) at full speed.

Welcome from the Missouri Ozarks!  :wave:

I am yet to visit the Lone Star State, and that tollway would be towards the top of my list when visiting the state.

Welcome from Upstate NY!  :wave:

Been to San Antonio and Corpus Christi, but never Houston.
I have done a bit of Street View browsing around the area, though. I find the modern freeway construction intriguing, and I spent quite a bit of time browsing the area around NRG Stadium, where the Bills played a few months ago.

Welcome from a few states east in Georgia!  :wave:

I've been to Texas before, but not Houston. I definitely hope to visit there in the future.

I find absolutely fascinating the ever-expanding network of outer beltway roads and rapid suburban development in Metro Houston. Houston has some really cool roads, and it is a very cool city.

I am looking forward to seeing you around on the forum.  :nod:

Hello there, I just joined yesterday.  I've passed through Houston (actually rented a car from/to IAH airport) but have not had a chance to spend quality time there...
