The highway which runs between I-35 and MOPAC (Loop 1) is called Ben White Boulevard, Highway 290 West, and Highway 290/71. Same road, just many names. If you get confused, all we can say is – we’ve been confused, too. Monterrey Oaks, the street where First Evangelical Free Church, our host church, is located, crosses this road of many names, and is a marked exit as you come from the east.
