States traversed: Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida
US Route 90 is an east-west route across some of the southernmost portions of the United States. The western end is in western Texas at Interstate 10 in Van Horn, about two hours east of El Paso. In west Texas, US Route 90 is the southernmost east-west route, but it heads east to San Antonio; after San Antonio, US Route 90 follows the Interstate 10 corridor into Louisiana. At Lafayette, Louisiana, US Route 90 dives south to southern Louisiana and New Orleans, but is comes back north to follow the Interstate 10 corridor east to end at Florida A1A in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. US Route 90 is an important route in San Antonio, Houston, New Orleans, Mobile, and Jacksonville.
My photo for US Route 90 was part of this smorgasbord of signs, which I found in Mobile, Alabama. This alignment of US Route 90 shown in the photo crosses over the highway home to the southern end of US Route 43. The truck route for traffic on US Route 98 follows the highway shown here, too. I saw an opportunity to photograph five different route shields at the same time! How could I resist? This was part of my first trip to the Gulf Coast in October 2014.
