DELAWARE TRIP PART 2
Interstate 20 Alabama

Interstate 20 runs from Interstate 10 in west Texas to Interstate 95 near Florence, South Carolina. The highway travels through several cities including Dallas, Shreveport, Monroe, Vicksburg, Jackson, Meridian, Birmingham, Atlanta, and Columbia. I drove Interstate 20 from Interstate 635 near Dallas, Texas, to Interstate 95 during the first three days of Delaware Trip Part Two.

Now, didn't we just see a 2-mile advance
sign for this exit a little bit ago. Seems to
me that the first one should actually be a
3-mile advance sign, since it is actually
that far from the split.

small one. Also notice that U.S. 431 is
spelled out. The highway on the overpass
ahead is U.S. 431, so shouldn't that be on
top? Moving on...
