360 looking across at Arboretum Blvd.

Looking at southbound traffic heading from US 183 towards RM 2222
Another stressful part of the commute, this manuever is not recommended for anyone but advanced cyclists. You must cross the two northbound lanes of the expressway carrying 60-65mph traffic to get to the left turn lane, then wait for an opening in the southbound lanes to get to the start of Arboretum Blvd. Then, as a reward, you get to take a huge climb which I usually can't do in anything but the granniest of gears; and all of this is because an apparently preexisting city road connection was destroyed by the construction of these two highways by TXDOT.
