How long will it take upon freeway completion for I-69 to be designated on US 59:

1. From Cleveland to Splendora?
2. Spur 10 to Fort Bend/Wharton county line ?
My guess, with at least the second one, is that given the project is effectively extending from an existing I-69 segment, it would be signed immediately.

A similar project of this nature, the Driscoll Bypass and interstate upgrade between Bishop and Robstown, already has “I-69E” shields on the new signage, as seen in the above pictures.

In that case, US 59 in Cleveland would be signed Immediately too. And so would Bishop to Kingsville, US 77.

^ Not sure how they’ll address US-77 south of the official I-69E project near Driscoll, but it could and should be singable as immediately I-69E.

Singable?  Like US 31W?

XD, yes. But the I-69 anthem would be Summer of ‘69 by Bryan Adams, or better yet, I-69 by Roman GianArthur.

Whiling the updates to I-69E/US-77 at Discroll and I-69/US-59 at FB County is nice and all, but any updates on the direct I-69/US-59 Nacogdoches intersection?
None. But, from May:

I was looking at that interchange location on Google maps.  They really threaded the needle on that.  It looks like very few properties along US 59 had to be removed for the Future I-69 lanes.

I guess construction will last forever, forever, no!

P.S. if the infrastructure bill is passed by Congress, will it cover I-69 in any capacity?

That all depends upon how much influence the rural states have over the language of the final bill.  Chances are that the bill won't cover specific projects, but parse out funds for various road projects over the specified timeframe.  That amount would determine if there's any room for new construction alongside the repairs and maintenance that prompted the legislative activity to begin with.  Once the language of the final/passed version is published, things will become somewhat more clear in this respect.  But unless there's funds specified for particular projects, it'll be business as usual, with state DOT's and the corresponding state delegation lining up to snag funding each fiscal year.  But with earmarks back in the game, enterprising representatives can often get funds directed where they want -- and TX historically hasn't been a slouch with that activity.  But whether that translates into any more activity for the less touted sections of I-69 (read in LA/AR/MS) remains to be seen; those states have generally been less active in such pursuits (or in the case of MS, just unable to come up with their share).
