BAYOUS & BLUES ROADTRIP
Interstate 10 Texas

Interstate 10 crosses the southern tier of the United States. It begins near the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica, California, and ends at Interstate 95 in Jacksonville, Florida. On the second day of this roadtrip I drove Interstate 10 from Interstate 45 in Houston to Interstate 12 in Baton Rouge and from Slidell to downtown New Orleans. On the third day of the roadtrip I drove Interstate 10 from Slidell west to Interstate 55 near LaPlace.

Interstate 45 to Louisiana State Line
Pictures taken December 17, 2002

Interstate 10 East approaching the downtown exit in Houston. This picture was actually taken from the ramp from Interstate 45 South to Interstate 10 East.
Interstate 10 East at Exit 769C - McKee St./Hardy St.
Interstate 10 East approaching Exit 770A - U.S. 59 South - 1/4 mile. U.S. 59 is the busiest freeway in the Houston area. U.S. 59 could become Interstate 69 in the future.

Interstate 10 East at Exit 803 - FM 565-Cove/Old River-Winfree.
What's this, an at-grade intersection on an interstate? This is on Interstate 10 East just before the Trinity River bridge. At least TXDOT has an extra lane for those slowing down to turn off the interstate here.

Interstate 10 East/U.S. 69 North at Exit 853A - U.S. 69 North - Lufkin. Construction was taking place between the two U.S. 69 exits; thus I was unable to take pictures of the exits on the west side of Beaumont.
