Day 2 of the trip: from Fort Worth to Brownsville via Laredo. These photos are along I-35 (or "IH35" in Texas vernacular).
Here is an unusual guide sign at Georgetown. Usually a green Interstate shield indicates a business loop or spur, so the added "BUSINESS" on this sign is redundant.
The next two photos are in Austin where I-35 goes into double-decker mode for traffic capacity purposes. I normally use the upper level because the lower level is a bit hilly, and the entering traffic can sneak up on the through traffic.
Here is a photo of the state capital area of Austin.
Usually streams are marked with "branch" or "fork" when not a main route of a river. This is the first time I have seen the use of "prong" in this case, about 20 miles south of San Antonio.
South of San Antonio the freeway goes through a remote semiarid area as the photo below shows. The speed limit is 75 for part of I-35 between San Antonio and Laredo.
The photo below is of a motel sign with a missing section, causing the sign to read "MOTE."
Here is a shot in the approach to Laredo.
