Every Freeway in the United States of America is allegedly under construction. I say allegedly only due to the plethora of orange cones, not due to any actual observed activity.

It is a national disgrace how long it takes a freeway to be repaired, and a worse one on how short the repairs last (due to 80,000 lb trucks mostly) after being completed.

Then when you get to OK this time of year it is hot!!!. But if you are coming from the LRGV you already know that. Good Luck and have a good trip.
Oh yeah it is hot down here. I will be going mid Aug and I don't think it will be getting any cooler than. The trip takes us from Tahlequah to Palo Duro then Deming N.M. Me, if we could I would be headed towards Seattle where they think 80+ is hot. You should of seen my son melting when he was in the RGV last year in June.

If you are comfortable pulling your rig in metro areas I would just go through the belly of the beast.
35N to 30E to 75N and you're good to go. Make sure your co-pilot is "on duty" and you'll have time to change lanes when needed since you won't be in rush hour traffic.

Being Seattle born but California raised and then returning to Seattle I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. It was funny to watch these people complain about how hot it was (80-90). I thought they had no clue what they were talking about. We also watched them run around in shorts when it was 60! We thought they were crazy. Now that we have lived in Seattle for 10+ years, I wine and cry just like the rest of them, wishing for the days in the 70's which we are having right now Just remember, for the other 300 days out of the year it's cold, rainy and yucky!

Road Construction 35W

I can't speak to I35E, but 35W is just terrible with all the construction going on where they are adding lanes and connections to the tollways. North of I20 is just awful going north to the Decator Cutoff per so. Dallas may be better even with all the challenges of the weird exits.

Brave woman. My husband usually does the majority of the driving, but it does not bother me at all to pull the trailer. Since I drive through Dallas a lot more than him, I figured it would be easier and less stressful for me to drive while he keeps an eye out for those that love to hug your rear bummer. Good thing I can be a bit aggressive at times. You just cannot be the least bit passive when dealing with city driver in any state.

Good on you gurl! I used to drive in NYC years ago. Now I get to fight the idiots in Miami and Fort Lauderdale when we go to the east coast. Grrrrrr.

Google maps is your friend, turn on the traffic setting and it will help tell you where to go.

My son and grandson went from Kansas City to Duncanville this week and we ended up telling him to come in on 75 then turn east on 635 and take it all the way around.

Bad part about DFW is no matter what between construction and traffic you're screwed.
