U.S. Route 90 is a major east-west highway in the U.S. state of Texas with large portions of it running concurrently with I-10. US 90 begins at I-10 in Van Horn, travels through San Antonio and Houston, and continues on into the state of Louisiana.

Route Description[edit]

Van Horn to San Antonio[edit]

US 90 begins in Van Horn at an intersection with I-10 and SH 54. US 90 travels in a southeastern direction towards Marfa where it starts an overlap with US 67. US 90 travels south and runs parallel to the US-Mexico Border near the Rio Grande. US 90 crosses the Amistad Reservoir then runs through Del Rio. US 90 turns right and runs east towards Brackettville. US 90 runs through Uvalde and Medina counties. US 90 then arrives in San Antonio where it serves as a major freeway on the city's Westside until its interchange with I-10 and I-35 at the southwest corner of Downtown.

San Antonio to Houston[edit]

East of Downtown San Antonio, US 90 multiplexes with I-10. This overlap ends in Seguin, and continues where the two highways continually cross each other en route to Houston. US 90 once again duplexes with I-10 east of Columbus briefly separating near Brookshire and continue overlapping from Katy all the way to Houston. At I-610 east of Houston, US 90 becomes independently known as the Crosby Freeway.

The Crosby Freeway from east of Beltway 8 to east of Runneburg Road in Crosby, was constructed in the early 1990s and opened to traffic in 1992. After several delays, construction work on the inner section of the freeway began in 2006 and was opened to traffic in January 2011.[1] The western terminus of the Crosby Freeway connects to the I-610 and I-10 interchange via two freeway ramps:

  • a ramp from westbound Crosby Freeway, joining an exit ramp from westbound I-10 to enter southbound I-610
  • a newly constructed two-lane exit ramp from eastbound I-10 connecting to eastbound Crosby Freeway.

The previous interchange was a four-level stack interchange though the new interchange is not a full five-level stack.

Because of funding constraints, two sections of the freeway inside Beltway 8 were not built to full freeway standards: a half-mile section over Greens Bayou and an approximately mile-long section east of Normandy Street. As of December 2012, only the feeder roads have been constructed, with space reserved in the median for future freeway mainlanes. Unlike most new freeway extensions in the Houston area built in recent decades, the Crosby Freeway is not tolled. Also unlike most of Houston's existing freeways and tollways, the Crosby Freeway does not have continuous feeder roads.

The Crosby Freeway has four to six mainlanes for its entire length.

Houston to Louisiana[edit]

The US 90 Crosby Freeway heads northeast leaving Houston and ends its freeway status in Crosby. US 90 then continues traveling east through Beaumont and once again duplexes with I-10. It then passes through Orange, until crossing the Sabine River into Louisiana towards Lake Charles. With the exception of a 13-mile-long section with only two lanes between Ames and Nome, US 90 has at least four lanes between Crosby and the Louisiana border.
