Yeah but the quote from the article said "three cities from the South". Dallas and especially Houston are in the South.

This is good for Birmingham. It's becoming a nice low cost alternative for folks who want to own a home.

I don't know, maybe when they wrote that six years ago they weren't considering Texas as part of the sample group or something hadn’t been completed yet. I've seen enough south vs deep south vs this versus that discussions around to know it's up for debate... depending on what's being talked about and who benefits by the association.

Either way, I count six interstate spokes for each of them. What am I missing for Houston?

The article was referencing Interstate roadways as part of the original national plan. Many cities, including all large Texas cities except the capital have six spokes or more due to local and state Freeways.
Similar to how Atlanta has a seventh spoke due to Ga 400.

Articles that focus on the Southeast often refer to the South and then Southeast erroneously, even within the same article. What is annoying is when people try to place Texas in the Southwest. Of course History and Geography seem to have become optional educational disciplines, however I have also observed that we may 'choose' what to believe also. There are no facts anymore it would seem.

South yes, but not really Southeast. Nor are Louisiana or Arkansas. Some Dallas residents even consider themselves as Southwest.

That's just an exit.

However, I do think the City of Hoover has the muscle to actually make this happen. And probably needs to happen, a lot of houses in and around there.

I was in my teens when this project was added to the first funding plan. I will be in my sixties when it is complete, if 2045 holds.
