I am particularly interested in El Paso to Junction, Tx. How rough is it? And if it is terrible, what would be your alternative suggestion? I am not in a hurry, but want a direct route. Thanks!

It's a very good road with an 80 mph speed limit. We took it from Las Cruces to Big Bend a couple of winters ago and had no problems at all. Generally Texas has some of the best highways in the nation because much of their oil lease income and royalties go to roads and universities (Texas had no Federal land so all the mineral income from public land goes to the state, not the feds).

We just came back from Kerrville Texas on Friday and I-10 is a good road. It was a bit slow through El Paso. We were not in a hurry so we stayed over night in Van Horn. Diesel and gas are higher than it was in New Mexico. Safe travels.

We had no federal land because y'all wanted us so bad we cut a deal to keep all the open land. But it was given away to the railroads to build tracks, and building materials for the capitol building, and..., and....
Funds from land sales and oil drilling go into the Texas Permanent School Fund, started in 1854.
Some may go to TxDOT, I'm not sure though.

If you are west or north of El Paso to start your trip, I recommend 375 around El Paso to skip the I-10 section along the border--great road and not much traffic. Further east on I-10 is just a nice easy drive with rest stop scattered along the way for stops. Remember this is the desert of west Texas that I really enjoy--others may think something else. Enjoy the ride!

It was just fine! Good surface, not too much traffic. Loved the northern pass around El Paso. Thanks everyone!

Just came from AZ on I-10 heading east and it was kind of rough in spots in AZ and NM, but once into TX it was a good road.
