if they even try one, it would likely be an extension of 130, or else, it would be a waste of time and money.

There's an unofficial loop nicknamed "The Circuit". http://www.texashighwayman.com/circuit.shtml

Very odd that there isnít continuity of the loop on the north end at 281. Any reason why it wonít just cut straight across 281?

It looks like Lake Edinburgh and some collection of wetlands ponds are obstacles on the West side of I-69C. That part of the loop has to go North around those land features.

Bids were opened today for the 365 tollway. The low bid is $296 million. This is about 14% above the estimated cost of $260 million listed on the Pharr district project list.

This is the rebid for Segments 1 & 2 of the 365 tollway; a previous attempt in 2017 bombed.

Where were those "365 Tollway Construction" photos in the OP taken?

I wasn't aware of any part of Toll 365 existing, but there's a trailblazer for it at the S end of Spur 29. :hmmm:

Edit: Maybe the photos in the OP were at the US281 San Juan Rd interchange?
