  4. Prepare for Congestion: Locals are encouraged to prepare for traffic congestion by stocking up on essentials ahead of time. Expect temporary interruptions in cellular services and credit card processing due to increased demand. Verify the open hours of local businesses before visiting.

  5. Southern Route: If you're traveling from south of Kerrville, the quickest route to the Interstate is via Highway 173 to Camp Verde, then east on Highway 27 to Comfort.

  6. Western Route: For those coming from west of Ingram, the fastest way to reach the Interstate is via Highway 27 in Ingram, heading west to Highway 41, and then onto the Interstate.
