Overview

Proposed as a 118 mile long spur from IH 69 near Tennaha to Texarkana, Interstate 369 was approved by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) on November 16, 2012.1 Currently only the freeway on the west side of Texarkana is signed as IH 369 with the remainder unbuilt, including the parent route in Shelby County.

The SL 390/US 59 Relief Route is a six mile long freeway around the east side of Marshall planned for inclusion to Interstate 369. Estimated to cost $440 million, Phase I of the project extends south from the intersection joining U.S. 80 and Loop 390 to IH 20 west of FM 31 and a point 1.2 miles south from there. Work may commence in 2025.2

History

Interstate 369 is Segment 29 of the proposed I-69 Route in Texas. The Alliance for I-69 Texas web site regularly lists projects along the IH 69 corridor, including those for IH 369. These previously included intersections improvements between U.S. 59 and Texas FM 989, funded for construction in 2014 and completed widening of 13 miles of U.S. 59 between Linden and Jefferson to four lanes.3

Jarvis Parkway (U.S. 59) at Texarkana was unveiled as Interstate 369 by the Texas Highway and Transportation Department (TxDOT) during a ceremony held on September 23, 2013. This added 3.5 miles of U.S. 59 to the Interstate system, from SH 93 and SH 151 north to IH 30.4
