Are we spending untold millions on I-14, that goes through the least populated area of the state? I don't think so.

True. This is a social project more than a needed highway project.

I don't see where I would ever get any use out of it so I don't really have a dog in that race. I would like to see I565 extended along the route of Hwy 72 up to South Pittsburg/I24. That would be extremely useful for North Alabama.

Relax Rightie. The chances of the five states involved paying for this project are slim to none.

Don't know about now, but at one time Interstate Highway projects were 90% Federal, 10% state funded.

Yes, it used to be. Not now. Now a Interstate is built by states using their discretionary Federal Highway Funding. So, do they build new roads or maintain the roads they already have?

Isn't this the same as some were promoting extending I-85 across the state?
Why not focus on upgrading and improving US 80 and see what impact that will have.
In the meantime finish major projects in the growth areas of the state.
I-14 will not happen in our lifetimes if ever.
