85 MPH Baby!!

I'm heading up to see my daughter who's attending the University of North Texas in Denton.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to try SH 1340 out!

Toll Hwy. 130 forges new path from Guadalupe County to Austin

By Bob Thaxton Seguin Gazette
GUADALUPE COUNTY — Gov. Rick Perry, with the assistance of Seguin Mayor Betty Ann Matthies, handled the giant scissors to snip the ribbon officially opening the southern segments of Texas Hwy. 130 in a ceremony Wednesday morning west of Lockhart.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on a northbound entrance ramp from Hwy. 142 to Hwy. 130.

After the ceremony, crews began removing barrels and barricades blocking access to the southern 41 miles of the toll road, and the southern segments from Mustang Ridge to Seguin were open by mid-afternoon Wednesday. Tolls will not be charged on Segments 5 and 6 during a free trial period lasting through Nov. 10.
