Surprised nobody's posted about this yet.
Results of Interstate/U.S. highway change applications from the Fall
2009 "annual meeting" are out. All applications were approved with
one main exception, that being PA's request to reroute US 15 onto the
new 4-lane bypass of Lawrenceville. Reason for disapproval, as was
expected by some and commented on when the applications were
published, is the lack of correlation with and lack of an application
from New York for the mile or so located within New York.
A few other items of note:
- I-485 officially designated in the NW quadrant of the Charlotte loop
(from I-85 clockwise around to I-77), which was already approved by
FHWA back in May.
- I-781 in New York (the Fort Drum Connector) is approved as a Future
Interstate, basically rubber-stamping what FHWA approved in April.
Since it's not built yet, the Future designation makes sense, though
it's expected to open next year.
- US 431 in Russell County, AL is given "conditional approval", with a
caveat to "approve when open in 2010". Funny thing there is, part of
it is already open. I drove the Pittsview bypass last year, though to
be fair it was only open to 2 lanes and the Glenville bypass wasn't
open yet at the time. But the bypasses were already partly open, so
it's weird that it's only given "conditional approval".
