I-14 now exists, but is not signed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_14 (sources linked off that page)

Just drove through Bishop yesterday. Upgrading of US 77 still in progress (and causing major backups as mainline traffic is shunted over to the frontage road around incomplete bridges), no I- signage in Bishop yet.

Also drove I-169 (what there is of it). Construction underway on new toll lanes in the median, to fill at least the northernmost gap between toll road segments. (I turned back at the turnaround marked Tur in the TX 550 file.) Might I-169 be extended once more of the toll road is finished?

BTW, I saw no I-169 signage, either on the highway itself or from SB I-69E. Not that it matters much since unsigned Interstates are eligible for the HB, but still.

(I turned back at the turnaround marked Tur in the TX 550 file.)
Per the manual, I should probably rename this TX550_U.
FWIW, 2011 GMSV has this signed for just FM511. Oscar, did you happen to notice this assembly, and how it's signed now?

Might I-169 be extended once more of the toll road is finished?
I assume it would be, yes. FWIW, I-169 is not yet listed in the TXDOT designation files.
FHWA Route Log & Finder List says 1.5 mi, which is a pretty good match for our  1.41 in the HB.
AASHTO SCOH USRN seems to agree too.
This I would expect FHWA/AASHTO action before any future extensions.

BTW, I saw no I-169 signage, either on the highway itself or from SB I-69E. Not that it matters much since unsigned Interstates are eligible for the HB, but still.
And just as usaif causes indigestion, so too does usai... ::)
Is it an intended-to-be-unsigned route, or an intended-to-be-signed-but-still-isn't-yet one? Gray area?
There's been enough fanfare; TXDOT seems to want its existence recognized, in some capacity. Are they just slacking on signage?
I think I may just clap my hands over my ears and shout LA LA LA, and leave this in the HB until it's a fully signed route...

Still work in progress, doesn't look close to completion.

AASHTO SCOH USRN Spring 2017
US87 NW Big Spring bypass / business

Bypass opened, and signed as US 87. Interchange work at the bypass/I-20 junction suggests plans to extend the bypass north, but where to?

Old route through town is signed as Business US 87 at its south end, but otherwise is signed as regular US 87. Coming into town from the north (as I did), there's no signage indication that you need to hop on the Interstate to follow the US 87 mainline. I've seen this kind of sloppy signing elsewhere, such as with US 287 in Corsicana coming from the south.

This is what I was referencing in my post you quoted.

https://ftp.dot.state.tx.us/pub/txdot-info/abl/projects/us87/brochure.pdf

Sometimes, it can take quite a while for these AASHTO approvals to become reality.
I've been waiting over 5 years now to see any signs of progress on the Cresson bypass in Satellite view...

New business
http://183south.com | FHWA
Map | Schematic
Late 2019, Phase 1, US 290 to Technicenter Drive: LoyLn is on OSM; added.
Late 2020, Phase 2, Technicenter Drive to TX71: Added MonDr, as it will be upgraded to an interchange. Still need to nail down coords for the Boggy Creek Turnaround, just S of Harold Ct between BolmRd and FM969. Gonna wait till this one opens, and see how it's signed...

Dropping from list
Upgrades to US77 in Bishop; may or may not be signed as I-69E: Probably waiting till the Driscoll bypass opens, and then this would be added to existing I-69ERob. I'll stay abreast of this project on AARoads.

Do now
TX US290 US183 TX45/130
recenter I-35(264)/TXSpr158
I-35Gai: 479A & 479B -> 479 unless in-use
