Interstate 69C

 

Routing

Interstate 69C was approved at the AASHTO meeting on November 15, 2012 for 13.5 miles of U.S. 281 freeway within Hidalgo County. The route ends 0.5 miles north of the U.S. 281 junction with FM 2812, where the existing freeway transitions into an at-grade divided highway.1 The route will eventually extend northward to Interstate 37 at George West.

History

The Edinburg bypass of U.S. 281 opened to traffic in 1980 as the first project to upgrade the corridor in Hidalgo County to limited access standards. The letter "C" in Interstate 69C relates to the I-69 branch designated "I-69 Central" in planning documents.2

A ceremony was held on July 15, 2013 in Pharr for the signing of both Interstates 2 and 69C on the same day a similar event took place in McAllen for Interstates 2 and 69E.
