briar forest FTW, take a left at the light after voss (Winrock) Briar Forest turns into San Felipe for one block after Voss, make a right on woodway...takes all of 20-25 minutes from your office to downtown on average....make sure to hang a left at the light Winrock (there is a Walgreen's on the corner) hang a right at the stop sign and follow around until you see Woodway.

it's not a shot....it's faster than trying to get up to I-10 by all means....even on sh*tty weather days. Any time I need to go downtown after work after 3, before 7....Briar Forest is almost a sure bet to be faster.

Careful cutting through on Briar Forest - LEO likes to keep the neighborhoods in there calm.

Best way I can think of (other than rush hour - you're screwed anyway) is to either exit Memorial/Kiberly and go left under the freeway or cur Memorial to Wilcrest and back up to 10.

Oh - and that ramp has been open throughout construction. The report says that safety inspectors noticed something and shut it down until it can be investigated further. I'd rather deal with traffic any day than end up falling with a huge a$$ flyover collapse.
