There one thing many dread in the state of Texas: Road work.

It's even worse when one doesn't expect it to pop up on their commute to wherever they're going isn't it? It could be a regular commute to work, or perhaps a dinner reservation. Whatever it could be, unexpected road fixing catches everyone off guard.

But we all have to remember that it's for the best, as improved roads make everyone happier. It's just sometimes hard to think that when were in stuck in bumper to bumper in 100 degree weather. The main question that one think when stuck due to though has to be "when will this be completed?"

For one major roadway in the Central Texas area, it'll be nearly ten years before the roadways are completed. The roadway in question is none other than I-35.
