Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Houston Freeways — for Free

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HOUSTON FREEWAYS — FOR FREE A reader writes in to make sure we were aware that the world’s best book on the popular topic of Houston-area freeways — which just happens to be entitled Houston Freeways — is available as a free PDF ebook download on the author’s website (yes, HoustonFreeways.com). Sharpstown native Erik Slotboom’s freeway-photo-filled 416-page opus has been out of print since 2005, though dedicated freeway fans can still scrounge up an only mildly battered physical copy for upwards of $100 on Amazon and other sites. Online only: Slotboom’s 5-year photo update of all the Houston Freeway happenings that took place between 2003 and 2008.

  • Bought this book when it came out. I eventually read it cover to cover. Fascinating stuff, but maybe that’s the history buff and “engineer” in me.

  • The PDF has been available for years. As soon as the last original copy was sold he made it available. It wasn’t cost effective to do another printing. Good thing I bought two of them when the came out.

  • Just sold a copy I had to Half-Price books in the Village – sold it for $40, so you’ll probably be able to buy for less than $100.

  • I bought a copy back in 2005 as well. One of the best books on local infrastructure I have ever read. If you can get your hands on a hard copy, do it!

  • I also bought a copy when it came out and I couldn’t be more impressed with it. I had no idea it was so valuable now.
