HOUSTON — Another Houston highway is getting national attention for all the wrong reasons.
A new report from Budget Direct found that I-45 is the most dangerous road in the country. The most dangerous stretch is the portion of 45 that runs through Houston, according to the report.
I-45 between Galveston and Dallas, according to the report, averages 56.5 fatal accidents for every 100 miles of road. The stretch of I-45 that runs through Houston is the most lethal, accounting for 73 deaths in 2019, the report said.
"Right now it's like a death trap," one driver said.
For years, the I-45 Houston Improvement Project has been in the works, but it's currently on pause.
