It's a long road....what stretch are you talking about. I have done 59 from Corpus Christi to Lufkin.

I've driven stretches in Texas, including from Houston toward Texarkana. Also, some parts southwest of Houston.

Sugar Land to the North Loop in Houston.

Nice freeway, except that part between the West Loop and IH 10.

I have done 59 from Corpus Christi to Lufkin.


I have to correct you, US 59 doesn't go to Corpus Christi, it comes within 60 miles at its I-37 interchange.

I have done Laredo to Houston and back on US 59.

US 59 needs a lot of work southwest of Sugar Land.  Missing shoulders in some places, narrow bridges, necessary resurfacings, etc. will be needed to upgrade this to Interstate standards.

I've been on it from Avoca, Iowa to Atchison, Kansas. It's kind of a neat alternative to I-29- the road is pretty poorly maintained through the parts of Missouri where it's not used for through traffic anymore, but it's fairly scenic. I especially enjoy the rolling hills between Shenandoah IA and Tarkio MO. It's a fun drive from Avoca to Savannah MO, then it feels like it takes forever to get through St. Joe, then it's fairly boring from St. Joe to Atchsion.

I've driven quite a bit of it in Missouri north of St. Joesph - can't remember if I've done all of it or if there is one small gap I missed.   Makes a nice alternative to I-29 when one has the time.  

I found it interesting that most of it north of St. Joesph was posted at 60 mph, given the lower quality of the alignment.

I've also ridden as a passenger on the Oklahoma section - main things I remember are the start of the Cherokee Turnpike and it seems there were many detours in towns on that trip where railroad crossings on US 59 were being worked on.

I've driven it from the North Loop to Grand Parkway in Sugar Land. One of the nicest freeways I've ever seen.
