TX-349 and TX-158 around Midland, A.K.A. future I-27W: The Thread

(1/2) > >>

TheBox:
Making this thread since US-87 from south of Lubbock all the way to San Angelo is actually a 4-lane divided expressway (as I said before), even if it still needs bypasses around say Sterling City and Lamesa and some minor QoL improvements.

Speaking of, future I-27(W) is proposed to start and split from Lamesa and ending and reunite at Sterling City whiling using TX-349 and TX-158 respectively as a base.

With Garden City in between Midland and Sterling City too.

The Ghostbuster:
I still think they should have gone with the original proposed designations for the Interstate 27 extension corridor: Interstate 227 instead of Interstate 27W; Interstate 27 instead of Interstate 27E; and Interstate 327 instead of Interstate 27N. I believe the third one was for a segment of US 287 north of Dumas towards the Oklahoma/Texas border.

Boy I hope this is correct. I like the (E) & (W) designations on I-35 in Texas & Minnesota. But those are short distances, relatively. I do not like the (E), (C), & (W) designation on I-69.  I can just see people getting confused easier on those than if it is a 3-digit. Hope the I-227 & I-327 is the way they go.

Sounds like they’re sticking with I-27W and I-27N

I-27W I get, but I-27N easily could’v stayed I-327, since it never reunites unlike said I-27W
