The added bonus of getting to this route is that we got to drive the ENTIRE length of another interstate: I-110. Our avid readers will remember that we did the same thing along I-16 in Georgia. However, this route was much shorter, only 4.1 miles, and it needs to be qualified because there are several I-110 spurs throughout the country. However, we can definitively say that we drove the entire length of this spur.
One added note: The Mississippi Welcome Center on I-10 going west was definitely the best state Welcome Center we’ve ever seen. It was more like entering a nice colonial-style museum than a rest area. And the ladies offering us coffee when we walked in the door couldn’t have been nicer. Southern Interstate Highway hospitality at its best!
