I-69/TTC
TexDOT ^ | 2010

Posted on 06/17/2010 11:44:14 AM PDT by antidemoncrat

Interstate 69 is a planned 1,600-mile national highway serving the United States between the borders of Mexico and Canada. Eight states are involved in the project. In Texas, I-69 will be developed as part of the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) master plan. The proposed I-69/TTC study area extends from Texarkana/Shreveport to Mexico (possibly the Rio Grande Valley or Laredo).

While on a recent trip to Mission Texas we notice construction along the proposed I69 interstate. It appears that even though Gov. Perry and other sources said the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC) was dead ( that was to follow I35), it has just been, as Progressives do so often for unpopular agendas, redefined. The TTC appears now to be the new and improved I69 and is under construction.

Reminds me of the Stone Mountain Frewway In Atlanta. It got stopped by GA supreme court for various reasons and came back as the Stone Mountain Parkway with a supposed 35 mph speed limit. It was going to connect the Carter Library with Stone Mountain so the locals called it the Ex-Prez Way. Finally got that killed too.

Why would it be numbered I-69, anyway?

I-65 is central Alabama, I-75 is central Georgia, I -69 would therefore be along the Ga/Ala border. Why is it in Texas?

Meet the new boss - same as the old boss.

Over the last 5 years or so there must have been a thousand articles ridiculing conservatives who warned of this.

“No truth to it!” we were told. “Just another right-wing, anti-immigrant scare tactic! said others.

But no matter which party runs the show, the BIG GOVERNMENT machine rolls on.

Yep, as Gov. Perry said the Trans-Texas Corridor is dead. As most Progressives do, they simply re-name it something else.

Here, is A.C. Wharton, mayor of Memphis, Tennessee, admitting the "Insert New Name Here" North American Superhighway exists.

Not that we have a choice in the governor's election, but I am astonished of how many Texans fall for Perry's conservative, tea party attending act now that the election campaign is here again.

Part of the ‘summer of recovery party’ Obama and Biden are planning, before elections get here..

Or are they getting ready to let the Mexican trucks just run through the U.S.?

I-69 already exists, or at least a part of it. Starts in Indianapolis and heads due north to Lansing, Michigan, then makes a 90-degree right turn off thru Flint and over to the Canadian border. The Governor of Indiana at one time wanted to change it to some other number, due to the unsavory overtones. (I-69, do you??)

Guess they want to extend it all the way to Mexico?

i69 starts in port huron, mi then goes to flint, lansing, (then past my house) down to ft wayne, and currently ends in indianapolis. the idea is that its supposed to eventually end up connecting with the proposed i69 in texas to be able to run a single highway from mexico to CA.

It shouldn't be in Texas, but there are other areas where the numbering scheme of the interstate highway system have been violated. For example, I-59 runs diagonally from I-24 just southwest of Chattanooga to I-20 in Birmingham, AL. Essentially, it runs between I-75 and I-65. It should have been called I-69.

the i69 signs get stolen all the time.
especially the mile marker 69 on i69- i pass it everyday on the way to work, it disappears a couple times a year.

But...but...I thought Gov Goodhair said it was dead. He wouldn’t lie to us, would he?

That’s what happens when RINOs get elected. They act just like liberals and smile while they apply the KY (not talking about Kentucky, either).

I-69 would be a strange alignment for a Trans Texas Corridor. About 700 miles too far East.

Bump. Gov Goodhair won't ever change his stripes. Can't wait for him to start making fun of those of us that want to close the freaking border again. Too bad the Texas republican party is eaten up with RINOs. The only choice we had in the primaries was Medina. I find it to be amazing that there isn't a single actual conservative in Texas that could run for governor.

On the bright side, I don't suspect Perry will be able to keep his particular brand of crony capitalism from biting him on the ass if he wins another term.

Folks in Shreveport are still trying to get I-49 to go all the way to Kansas City. Then from KC to the Canadian border with the southern terminus going down into Texas. The idea is for traffic/business to expand while they pick up a slice as it goes by.

I used to live right off of exit 145. Don’t recall stolen signs, though everyone made fun of it.

“Now we are building the illegals a frickin’ freeway?”

The America we knew is fading fast over the horizon. They couldn’t get at it from the outside so they’re taking her down brick by brick from the center out.

Yes, they’re building a motor vehicle highway and railroad for the world to tear through our country from bottom to top and from top to bottom.

It goes all the way to Canada; from Mexico to Canada.

The multi-modal corridor concept is dead. Texas still plans to build roads.

The TTC was to follow I35 which started in Laredo and is not that far from Mission. I’m sure that after they get done with I69, they will “revisit” I35.

A grade-separated highway on the east side of Texas from the Border will provide the incentive and opportunity to increase Texas trade through the Panama Canal. To get this done, it will be a simple matter of grade-separating existing US Highways in several locations. Why don’t you want to see the Texas economy in (a true Republic) flourish?

And don’t forget now boys and girls the socialist/Marxist/RATS also have a plan to greatly reduce automobile use and develop high-speed rail, which few will be able to afford to ride, and can’t afford to go anywhere anyway. (Special tax on this and that, double your electric bill, you get the drift, right.)

I think Mexico and Central and South America will flourish but I doubt if the US will benefit as much. I think we import a lot more from Canada and countries south of the border than we export to them. Also I understand that China would rather send their goods to us through Mexico rather than directly to us.
