DELAWARE TRIP PART 2
Interstate 20 Mississippi

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.

Washington St./Warrenton Rd./Mississippi
Welcome Center - 1 mile. The Mississippi
River bridge is just ahead.
From National Lampoon's Vacation:
Deeeeeeeeeeeep River. My home is over
Jordan! Here it is, kids, the ol' Miss, the old
man. The bridge was being repainted on
this day, so traffic was reduced to one lane
in the eastbound direction.
