If you like hanging out in traffic and getting a nice obstructed view of the university - please, take the upper deck.
Is a lower deck where you poop in the normal part of the toilet?
No, that's the poop deck.
My answer wasn't available, lower deck going north, upper deck south. But I don't drive I-35 more than 3 times a year.
I don't drive 35 during rush hour but on my trips from SA to Austin the lower deck almost always has less traffic.
feeder road gets you to Chicas Bonitas

the "through traffic" taking the upper deck needs to be in the two right hand lanes which is generally where traffic that is entering and exiting a freeway would be while the traffic that is looking to exit the freeway at the access points provided by the lower level needs to be in the two left most lanes which is generally where "through traffic" would be driving
then when the upper and lower levels come back together they of course feed the "through traffic" into the same two right hand lanes which means those vehicles need to make lane changes to the left to get back into the lanes that "through traffic" would normally drive
then you have the issue of people that just jump on the freeway just before the splits start and that are going to only go a short ways and exit needing to swing across at least two lanes to get to the lanes going to the lower deck so they can then exit back off
or people that enter from the lower deck to go a short distance and then need to swing across two lanes after the lanes come back together so they can exit
they needed to make the upper decks start and end from the two left most lanes of the four lane single levels of freeway
Also, my once a year rant on the lower deck: There is never a need to stop on the lower deck entrance ramps if the traffic is moving and you can't merge in right away. The shoulder continues the entire length of the lower deck, even under the bridges. Keep your ass going, someone will let you in. It may feel like you're Luke Skywalker about to take the shot into the Death Star reactor, but there is plenty of room on that shoulder. You will not hit the wall. No $#@!ing stopping.
that's because the southbound upper deck right lane becomes exit only at 12th, right? so essentially the 2 "through lanes" for the upper deck go down to one lane at that point. so the four lanes southbound funnel down to three lanes through the entire downtown area.
then it only expands to four lanes well south of town. so they essentially created a massive bottleneck downtown with the southbound upper deck design.
Upper deck, only when I'm feeling feisty.
Not a commie. Libertarian. Which is why i choose the one with less traffic, unless I'm exiting 38th or 15th/MLK.
$#@!ing off-season scat threads.
What about Option C: Frantically changes lanes back and forth at the last second before the split
Because those people should be rounded up and moved out of the city.
I preferred it when it was called East Avenue.
Upper. I avoid the lower deck of death. $#@! that canal of despair.
Although I have no proof I would be willing to bet my house it was designed by TxDOT aggies
Going north, lower deck. Going south, upper deck. I like getting a view of downtown/campus coming into town, especially at night.
Thanks to the toll road I have avoided that $#@! for the last few years . $#@! both decka
They should have made the upper deck go from 51st to River side. Complete bypass of downtown.
Upper. Used to do the lower all the time, but started losing windshields at an alarming rate - rocks or whatever kicked up causing cracks, though thankfully no TxTow rocks. After replacing 3 windshields in a couple of years (I'm a slow learner) I started taking the upper deck exclusively, even though it's usually slower.
South of Pflugerville, 183, north of Pflugerville; 45/130.
Dallas? 71 to the airport or I45.
No, I'm not joking. I do not ever get on I35.
It's probably not true that the guy who designed it killed himself, but it would make sense.
