Crossings: Texas

In Crossings the controversial delivery of tarsands oil to Port Arthur, Texas is examined at ground level through the dispassionate eye of Google Street View, the automated documentarian of our nation’s roadways. The 180° diptychs compiled here are composed of opposing camera views from each intersection of the Keystone pipeline corridor with Google’s roving camera. This is a historical moment, captured incidently, accessible for a year or so, and then deleted from the record at the next passing of the camera.

This segment extends from the Texas border to the pipeline’s terminus in Central Garden, Texas. It contains 96 crossings. Images are ordered north to south. Click on any image to begin viewing enlarged images. Slower connections will experience a delay as images load.
