Picture of the Day ...
Interesting... the highest speed limit in the United States is in Texas...
Texas State Highway 130 , also known as the Pickle Parkway, is a highway from Interstate 35 in San Antonio to Georgetown. The route parallels I-35 and is intended to relieve the Interstate's traffic volume through the San Antonio–Austin corridor by serving as an alternate route.
The highway is noted for having a speed limit of at least 80 mph along its tolled section. The 41-mile section of the toll road between SH 45 and I-10 has a posted speed limit of 85 mph, the highest posted speed limit in the United States.The highway was developed in response to the tremendous surge in truck traffic on the I-35 corridor brought on by the North American Free Trade Agreement during the late 1990s, especially truck traffic originating from Laredo, where the Texas Department of Transportation reported 150 trucks entering the United States every hour. A proponent of the highway's development, Capital Area Transportation Coalition, said that congestion along the I-35 corridor is costing businesses more than $194 million a year in higher operating costs and lost productivity.
