TEXAS trip
Apr. 30-May 6 2015

I have no idea what was so interesting here that I took a photo. Maybe something was stinking. This has to be in Burnet, Texas.

Near Copperas Cove, US 190 seemed to have been recently shapen into a freeway. The hill in the background looks like it was carved to look like some of the Egyptian pyramids.

US 190 near Killeen had this hilarious teeth billboard.

US 190/TX 36 goes under this rail bridge near Rogers.

This unpaved road is what Google Maps labeled as SEC 113.

Going back under that rail bridge.

On US 190 in Heidenheimer, there's this bend where we look straight ahead onto a short abandoned stretch of US 190. What is now Biz US 190 is in the background.

As we get on I-35 in Temple, it looks like they're building a new frontage road for I-35 in addition to the one they already have! It's possible they were preparing to widen I-35 to engulf the existing frontage road, but I don't know. (Engulf is a funny word.)

I-35 narrows as it goes under Main Street in Troy. This is almost like a Laurel, though Troy is much smaller.

Was the frontage road the old US 81?

Another construction gauntlet. The left side of I-35 appears elevated on a wall, but I don't know if it's just borrowing the frontage for that side.

I-35 has a somewhat complicated interchange with Sun Valley Boulevard in the Waco suburb of Hewitt. The swooping bridge is a long ramp from Spring Valley Road to I-35.

Perchance much more elaborate is the exit in Waco to our old friend TX 6 and TX Loop 340.

The Waco skyline lurks behind the substation.

A minor side road near Waco.

I'm pretty sure this is TX 14 under a rail bridge near Richland.

I-45 near Corsicana. This is the part that bypasses town, so - disappointingly - the road at right was likely not an old U.S. route.

I think this is I-45 near Palmer. I was hoping to be able to find out whether the frontage road at right is the old US 75. Sort of like the dentist commercial where the patient was hoping her x-rays would be free, but we don't always get what we want, do we?

Still on I-45, Dallas comes into view from miles away.

Somebody accidented here.


Another view of Dallas.

And another.
