US Route 190 runs east-west across Louisiana and Texas. As US Route 90 goes west crossing from Mississippi into Louisiana along the Gulf Coast, it diverts southerly toward New Orleans and the south side of Lake Pontchartrain. In its wake, US Route 190 is born, taking over as the route continuing straight west to Slidell and the north side of Lake Pontchartrain. US Route 190 continues west through Hammond and Baton Rouge, and then it parallels US Route 90 and Interstate 10 to the north. US Route 190 continues west into Texas as the next federal highway north of those routes, through College Station and Austin. US Route 190's western end merges with Interstate 10 in western Texas, near the town of Iraan, south of Midland and Odessa.
My photo of US Route 190 signs was taken along the northbound offramp from Interstate 55, at the interchange where it meets US Route 190 on the west side of Hammond, Louisiana. This was part of my trip south kicking off my third trip to the Gulf Coast in January 2019. I clinched Interstate 55 on the southbound part of this trip. I parked my car at the gas station off to the right and walked over to this sign assembly to take the photo. Back to the nationwide main page. Back to the home page.
