The first half of the Corrigan bypass is now visible on Google Maps satellite
Wake me up when they upgrade US-290 between the state's largest city and growing capital into expressway standards if it interstate standards.

Giddings bypass, Elgin bypass, and Elgin-Manor freeway/tollway when?

Here is the image of the future US 59/future Interstate 69 western bypass of Corrigan: https://www.google.com/maps/@30.9904612,-94.8325865,4797m/data=!3m1!1e3?entry=ttu.

This bypass should at least extend to US-287 on both ends. It should run US-287 on the southeast side of Corrigan to US-59 south of Corrigan as well.
Let's build what we need as economically as possible.

With US 287 being studied for interstate feasibility, that might come sooner rather than later.

Now, if they could update the El Campo imagery...

Good I-69 progress projection
https://www.dailysentinel.com/news/local/txdot-i-69-wont-be-funded-until-2034/article_cd8b98f0-0ed3-59ec-aa67-858bfe9ea0ee.html

A massive construction project at south Loop 224 is set to be complete in late 2026, but it will be more than a decade before an interstate highway goes all the way through Nacogdoches.

Just over 28 miles of interstate are under construction within TxDOT's nine-county Lufkin District, including Nacogdoches' U.S. 59 and Loop 224 interchange reconfiguration.

Another oft discussed I-69 project is the reconstruction of the U.S. 59 and U.S. 259 intersection, long known as a dicey spot for commercial trucks due to accidents. The project, which will remove the cloverleaf-style intersection and add ramps and access roads, isn't expected to begin construction until 2029.

"I think it's going to take three to four years to purchase all that property and then relocate utilities," Adams said.

A third I-69 project — reconstruction of the west Loop to include access roads — is even further down on the timeline. It will be recommended for funding in the state's 2025 10-year plan for construction in 2034.

I see in the same article that TxDOT wants to redo the US 259/TX 204 intersection.  It's currently a "Y" with a picnic area in the middle of the Y/triangle.  The redo will make it a "T" instead; I guess that will take out the picnic area, the only one on TX 204.  The widening of US 259 to add a left turn lane north of TX 204 is also mentioned.

Been a lot of progress since August of last year. Here is the Corrigan bypass on April 22, 2024 from the Copernicus satellite:

It looks huge probably the fact it has to do a big bypass since the town is spread throughout along the road.
They just separated almost the whole industrial zone. Except for the one place up north.

And how's the Diboll bypass right now?
