It could then overlay the four laned GA 53 from Rome to Calhoun and tie back into 75. I would recommend a new route from Dalton to Cleveland TN to tie back into 75 there.
I like it better as an outer perimeter. It will serve more traffic. From Georgia's standpoint (and from a population served standpoint), it would be preferable to follow US 19 to Albany and to near Tallahassee as opposed to veering into Alabama. It could also connect into a long term Florida project, their northeast corridor, which is a plan to connect Tampa to I-75 near Gainesville.

I have been begging for this kind of Interstate. It will make my trips between Austin Texas and Atlanta so much easier.

It will also give East / West traffic a way to bypass Atlanta... if they made a I-114 spur someplace west of Villa-Rica and linked it to I-14 ... that would REALLY thru truck traffic.
Louisiana is focused on completing I-49. They seem to be last on the I-69 project with Indiana, Kentucky and Texas all moving rapidly.

Alabama is already working on a Montgomery bypass and an I-85 extension that would roughly follow the proposed I-14 route to Mississippi.

Just being realistic. Outer perimeter seems to be DOA.

Kentucky basically reallocated some of the existing Parkways to I-69...which was a pretty cool idea but basically nothing on a serious scale other than upgrading some interchanges from what I could tell. Memphis on the otherhand I applaud for making a new perimeter around itself and actually managing to do this through its neighboring state Mississippi. Texas also basically just re-allocated U.S. 59 to I-69. It doesn't seem like much more has happened in Texas besides that as far as I-69 goes.


I-14 either way for me is a welcome addition to the interstate system.

Agreed. I’m just confused as to how they are going to navigate all of those hills and curves along Taylor County and such. I absolutely hate The Fall Line Freeway though that area. It’s almost as bad as State Route 520 through Cusseta, Richland and so forth.

It’s not too bad through there. A lot of solar farms that might get interrupted potentially.

Texas has added quite a few miles to I-69 in the Rio Grande Valley and in East Texas. Indiana and Kentucky are working on an I-69 bridge.
