It may be but unless they've upgraded it to 4 lanes in numerous places it's a slow go from Waldron to Dequeen. Once you get S of Dequeen it's still about 50 minutes to Texarkana.

From Fayetteville, it's about as easy to take US412 to Wagner and go S on US 69 to the Texas State line.. Just be darned aware of the speed limits in the different little towns that dot that route. It's a money maker.
If you go thru Dequeen you dont go thru Texarkana

I have family in Friendswood, and get to make that magical drive at least once a year.

Be prepared that 59 goes through numerous smaller (and fairly large) towns, so there will be many slowdowns along the way.  It brings you in from the north and NRG stadium is in the southern part of Houston. 

If you have never had the "pleasure" of driving in Houston traffic, you are in for a "treat." 

Although I agree with notshavin', the terms I would use to describe Houston are not appropriate for this forum.

Drove the non Dallas way last summer.  Wasn't a bad drive.  Plus, by not going through Dallas, you give yourself less stress by not driving with all of the traffic and construction going on.

The only kind of slow stretch in the non Dallas route is in Oklahoma when you go through some of the Ouachita National Forest.  And that stretch is only slow if you get stuck behind a big truck.  Once you hit Texas, the speed limits go up to 80 mph.  So if conditions are good in Oklahoma, it should be approximately the same or if not faster route.

Will warn though that the non Dallas route requires a good GPS/navigator in your car.  If you don't have one or aren't good with navigating, take the Dallas route so you won't waste time getting back on the right track because you missed a turn or two.

Highway 59 to Houston: Where's the good eats?
« Reply #15356 on: December 26, 2014, 11:24:26 am »

Taking the fam down to Houston. My daughter only eats pasta, my boy eats everything in sight. I figure they'll get hungry right past Texarkana where I don't know anything about the cuisine. Any favorites from amongst the Hogville brethren?

Reliant is a beautiful stadium, but outside of that, Houston is flat, hot, muggy, very dangerous and the people are arseholes.

St. Louis has some awful areas, but the areas that are great are really great.  It also has a lot of history, tradition and the people are really nice.  The Arch and the Cardinals' stadium alone make it a great city.  Also, their knowledge and love of baseball is really cool.

I take 59 from texarkana going to and from Russellville.  59 will go straight through, although gps will have you take some serious to recent construction.  Speed limit is 75 though so it's a little better driving than in Arkansas. I've been living in the woodlands since May, and have no inclination to drive into Houston proper.  Traffic is horrible, and that's compared to Milwaukee traffic.  Be safe!

I beg to differ with your opinion of Houston.  I love Arkansas but you are just plain wrong about Houston, maybe you have not spent enough time here to see all the good points.  Like any other city it does have some bad areas, but they are more than compensated for by the many great parts.  It does get hot here, but no more so than Arkansas and the winters are much better.

By the way thanks for calling me an arsehole.

You're probably right now w/ the advent of IH49 connector, but back when I lived there in the mid 90's Waldron, Mena, Grannis, Dequeen etc... were required slow downs.

Fayetteville to Fort Smith then 71/59 to Texarkana then 59 to Houston.  About 50 miles and an hour shorter than through Dallas.  Traffic in Dallas is a bummer.  My wife travels Houston to Ft Smith every month or two.    I live in NWA. My mom was in hospital in Houston for 4 weeks. I found the hwy 71 south to Texarkana then hwy 59 was the best route. Could make trip in 8-8.5 hours. Be careful and go hogs!

Beware on Hwy 59 of the Texas Rangers.  They like to use unmarked cars and they will be looking for Arkansas license plates.  If you are only doing about 5 mph over the speed limit, they won't touch you.  They are looking for the bigger prizes.

The last time I went from Shreveport to Houston, I got a speeding ticket in Corrigan, which was my first in 29 years. Watch the speed limits closely because they have no "reduced speed ahead" signs on 59 that I saw. Corrigan and Dibol (spelling?) are the worst! I swore I was never going to Houston again, but, lo and behold, I'm going Monday! Safe travels, everyone! #WPS

It took me two hours to drive through Houston once. I spent a week there one night.

Fort Smith to Ashdown–and the flip-flop–is no fun drive!  There are very few stretches suitable for passing.  If you get hung up behind a slow-mover and have to gouge it to pass on one of those rare stretches, beware of the bear–especially around the Cove area.

For students living in SW Arkansas it’s a much easier, quicker, and SAFER drive to Louisiana Tech rather than to the U of A, and Tech has lenient grade requirements to wave the out of state tuition fee.

Go Hogs and have fun!

Good question.  I've been searching and can't find the answer.  I'm pretty sure the Yankees and somebody else may hold that record.  But as far as fans go, their are no more baseball-smart fans than the Red Sox and Cardinal fans, IMO.

I live in Nacogdoches. We have a really good Italian Food restaurant named Auntie Pastas.  When you are bypassing Nacogdoches, take the highway 21 exit for Douglass. Turn left and go under the highway. Once you go into town and cross the railroad tracks, take a left on Old Tyler Rd.  Auntie Pastas is up on the left about 300' after you get on Old Tyler.  It is in the same building as another restaurant called Clear Springs. Auntie Pastas is in the back of that building.  Once you leave Hwy 59, it's only about a 5 minute drive.

Great Italian food. Great atmosphere. Great service. We eat there all the time. My wife's favorite.

Just for clarification the Texas Rangers don't work traffic enforcement unless they are doing a criminal investigation; they will then use a marked Texas Highway Patrol unit to initiate the traffic stop. As a general rule the HP will use only  unmarked cars that belong to supervisors but that's the exception rather than the rule. TxDPS still does traffic enforcement in marked units. Another caveat, with the fuel costs being lower, the aircraft division will certainly work traffic enforcement in conjunction with the HP marked units if traffic flow justifies  that enforcement tool.

I travel a lot between Hot Springs Village and Houston to visit friends and family. I was stopped earlier this year coming into Tenaha on 59 by a Texas Highway Patrolman. I was doing 61 in a 55 but the speed limit 1/2 mile away was 75 so I was trying to slow down but I was speeding. When he pulled me over in town he informed me that I also changed lanes in an intersection and my wife was in the back seat sleeping without her seat belt on, both Texas infractions.

When I handed him my license and insurance, I also gave him my CCW permit and he asked if I had my weapon with me and I said I did and told him where it was. He then asked me to come with him to his car. I thought then I was going to be spending the night in the Tenaha jail.

Once in the car he informed me that he was giving me warnings for all three infractions and told me he was very glad to see me carrying my weapon while traveling. He said he cannot count how many people he stops that have a CCW permit but they say they do not have the weapon with them and he said what's the point in getting one if you are not going to carry.

Overall, I have nothing but praise for the trooper. I was very polite after getting pulled over and he treated me with the utmost respect. These people put their lives on the line every day so let me say thank you for your service Mr. GolfnHog. And I try to get slowed down quicker now coming to the towns on 59.

Go hogs, beat Texas!!!
