Interstate 369 ( I-369) is a north–south auxiliary Interstate running through Northeast Texas. Once complete, the freeway will begin at an interchange with U.S. Highway 84 (US 84) and the new I-69 east of Tenaha and head northward to Carthage, Marshall, Jefferson, and Atlanta before terminating at I-49/ US 59/ US 71 in Texarkana. For its entire length, I-369 will share its alignment with US 59.
History [ edit ]
At the November 15, 2012 meeting,
American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) approved an 115-mile-long (185 km) I-369, a spur from I-69 in Tenaha to I-30 in Texarkana. The [3 ] Federal Highway Administration approved the designation on May 24, 2013, and the Texas Transportation Commission followed suit on May 30, 2013. [4 ] This action also finalized the designations of other Interstates in Texas. [5 ] This action means that the [4 ] Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) can commence the signing of I-369, as well as the other route segments cited, at their discretion. The signage was installed and revealed on September 23, 2013. [1 ]
The status of the Texarkana to Tenaha segment is unfinished; it is currently only in the planning and development stage. The proposed route of I-369 is to go from
Loop 151 in Texarkana, following US 59 to the junction of US 59/US 84/future I-69 in Tenaha.
Exit list [ edit ]
The entire route is in
Texarkana, Bowie County. All exits are unnumbered.
