It will probably last until the Fulton/South Fulton interchanges are fixed which I think is further along.  Kentucky will have I-69 finished to Exit 1 in Fulton by the end of 2024.  The state line interchanges and reroute should not take nearly as long as new construction around Troy, So we should have I-69 complete from US 51 to just South of the Ohio river in a few years.

Correct. TDOT and KYTC have a project in the Tennessee STIP for engineering on the state line interchange; the sketch in the TDOT STIP shows the I-69 mainline continuing northeast and then curving northwest to tie in north of the state line about where the weigh station is now.

There's nothing suggesting what will come of TN 214 but due to interchange spacing they probably will get rid of the ramps and have it tie in to Old Pierce Road or extend it east to US 45E at the existing at-grade by the middle/high school. Nor is there any indication of what if any local access will be provided to South Fulton from I-69; there probably isn't enough traffic to justify anything fancy.

This is the link to the STIP item, apparently the total cost is around $53M and they will spend about $3M on the planning.

What kind of timeline are we looking at for this project?

There is already a TN 69.  It runs from the Alabama border southeast of Savannah all the way to the Kentucky border northwest of Paris.  Much of it is superceded by US 641, but it does have significant stretches where it runs alone at each end.  There’s even a TN 69A that runs from Camden to Paris via Big Sandy.

And not all that far east of the I-69 corridor, either.

Interestingly, Kentucky has not yet changed the numbers of either KY 69 or KY 165, which still exist. KY 165 is on the other end of the state, but KY 69 is relatively close to I-69.

Those hotels predate any inkling of the location of I-69 by quite a bit; especially the Quality Inn. ;)


For the record, that's 13 years of construction for this measly chunk of I-69. Some of that pavement is almost a decade old already.

The grading is a decade old. The paving project started in 2021.
