Interstate 369 (I-369) is a south–north Interstate Highway spur route running through Northeast Texas. Once complete, the freeway will begin at an interchange with Interstate 69/U.S. Highway 84 east of Tenaha and head northward to Carthage, Marshall, Jefferson, and Atlanta before terminating at an interchange with I-49/US 59/US 71 north of 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.[3] The Federal Highway Administration approved the designation on May 24, 2013,[4] and the Texas Transportation Commission followed suit on May 30, 2013.[5] This action also finalized the designations of other Interstates in Texas.[4] This action means that the 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]

Future[edit]

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.
