(FYI: I helped design the BGS's for that site, and I'll definitely showcase my own creations in Road Related Illustrations at a later time.)

Federal Aid Highway Act of 1968 Interstate System Additions Proposed March 1970

The Federal Aid Highway Act of 1968 authorized a 1500-mile increase in the nation's Interstate Highway System, bringing the total to 42,500 miles. Texas proposed I-27 from Amarillo to Lubbock in 1968 and received approval. The Bureau of Public Roads asked the other states to submit proposals for the available 1500 miles. The states however proposed a total of more than 11,000 miles. By April 1970, proposals for 9,400 miles were submitted at with an estimated cost of $13 billion. Some proposals became actual Interstate routes like I-540 in northwest Arkansas, which later was redesignated as I-49, and US 78 ADHS Corridor X from Memphis to Birmingham that has since been completed as I-22.
