Fastest Highway in U.S. Opens

Last month, the fastest highway in the United States opened in Texas.  The so-called Pickle Parkway (kind of a strange name for a road) features a speed limit of 85 mph and is officially State Highway 130.  It was named for former Congressman J.J. Pickle and is 41 miles long connecting Austin and San Antonio.

It is hoped it will alleve traffic on nearby I-35.  It is a toll road costing 15 cents a mile.  Taking it will get you there six minutes faster.

I guess I would save the $6.15 and go the superslab.
