    Going in on Monday, 12' wide.
    Permit says to take I-610 to 225E to Goodyear exit, but that appears to be on the south side of the river.

    Looks to be exit 30A off 610S - 92nd st North to Manchester St to get there.

    Address is 10000 Manchester St, Suite A.

    Never been there before - anyone have any pointers?

    Thanks.

    30A is the correct exit.

    Thanks -

    No problem at 12 wide?

    Looks like Manchester St is semi residential. Didn’t know if they had local port nazis poised to nab truckers.

    Nope. I went in there 14W and 15H on 8 axles a few years back. Houston PD was busy escorting a platform out of there at about 40 wide. They were barely able to squeeze past.

    When you're on Loop 610 southbound, the exit for Hwy 225 (it only goes East) will be right at the bottom of the Sidney Sherman bridge that crosses the ship channel. Please be very mindful of your speed the whole time you are descending the grade because you don't really have any time to slow down before you enter the ramp. BTW, the exit ramp is on the right hand side, and then it makes a curve to the left. I always stay below 35 MPH on that ramp, loaded or empty.

    Still on track?

    A side note, I don’t have enough money for bailing you out. So behave.

    Me do no wrong, sleep straight in bed at nights.

    Not like the Landstar driver I bailed out of jail a few years back, he kept $2000 cash in his truck for such occasions.

    Right onto Goodyear, left onto lawndale street. Watch for pot holes you will catch a few from Goodyear all the way to the left onto central ramp. Not sure how long you will be but the right onto Manchester typically isn’t bad, just gotta wait for traffic to clear. The middle curb ends probably 80’ before your turn onto Manchester from central. Manchester road is also a mess, watch the pole as you jolt to the right, terminal is at the far end. Check in office is…. Well…. It’s roughly, here —

    I often end up having to walk back to the guard shack with my paperwork and they will tell you where to go from there. Parking situation is very… day by day. Don’t worry about backing into wherever they tell you, I often just find a spot and they tend to be okay with it as long as you’re not blocking the pipe boys of which they’re will be plenty of stick and brick flatbeds running 40mph everywhere.

    it’s very…disorientating. They just put stuff wherever they can fit it.

    His route is the route that is on your permit. It adds a bunch more turns to get you onto Manchester St 2 blocks east from using exit 30A.
