I take it from this comment that you've never tried to drive up I35 through central Austin.

It's not officially the worst stretch of road in Texas (that's I-35W just north of Fort Worth), but it has to be near the top. In my personal experience, it's the worst.

The toll road shaves an hour off the trip from San Marcos up to North Austin


Or more, depending on what's going on in Austin that day or night. The first time I drove it, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Tolls aren't cheap, but they're worth every penny, IMO.

The road actually goes all the way up to Georgetown.
