What is traffic on Interstate 20 like?
I’m traveling to Dallas fairly soon and I’m going to take Interstate 20 most of the way. I want to plan my trip ahead of time, but I’ve never driven on I-20 before. What’s the traffic like on Interstate 20?
Answer provided by
Traffic on Interstate 20 is comparable to any other major thoroughfare in the South. If you’re taking Interstate 20 through Dallas, you’re going to experience heavy traffic during rush hour and other peak times.
Depending on where you’re coming from, you may also experience heavy traffic when driving through Atlanta, so bypasses such as I-285 are highly recommended. The only other area where traffic is poor is near Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but this is contingent on whether the University of Alabama football team is playing.
Overall, Interstate 20 cuts through five states and stretches over 1,500 miles, making it one of the longest interstates in the country.
Other places of note that are ideal for a quick stop or a place to spend the night are:
- The Augusta Riverwalk in Augusta, Georgia
- Mississippi Museum of Natural Science in Jackson
- Shreveport Aquarium in Shreveport, Louisiana
- Six Flags over Arlington
