Having driven it many time it is US 78 from the Mississippi-Alabama state line to Exit 85.  However, the portion between Exit 85 and Exit 93 is open to "local traffic" (like I would obey that).  This is also signed as US 78 with the blue shields, but not a part of US 78 right now.

Gotta do the roadgeek thing and disregard the "local traffic" signage (lol).

Bryant:  the western terminus of Corridor X is where it meets Corridor V near Fulton, MS (MS 25 North/Exit 108).  By the book, the 22 miles of 78 between that location and US 45 (Exit 86) are part of Corridor V.

Okay, cool. Got you. Thanks, froggie.

there is a story in the birmingham news today that the corridor x connection project to i-65 is trying to get stimulus funding and the northern beltline in birmingham will be named i-422

http://www.al.com/news/birminghamnews/metro.ssf?/base/news/1243325715144810.xml&coll=2



Also, was there not a feasibility study of extending the Interstate 22 freeway east to I-20/59 currently underway?



I do believe there has been, and iirc the concept has been discarded as the route was too developed both commercially and residential.

Also my understanding is there would not be enough traffic to justify it.

Existing freeways are more then adequate

Has anyone ever seen the plans for the I-22/I-65 interchange?

Just the early ones, which made it onto ALDOT's 1998-era Jefferson County map.  Basically half of a stack with an extension to US 31.  Not sure if that's still what's planned...

I have seen some almost-complete plans, and the configuration is pretty much that, but there is a C/D system from 41st Avenue through the I-22 interchange up to the US 31 interchange on both sides. It is a pretty impressive interchange.

Going to Tunica next Sunday and Monday (April 11th and 12th). So, I will be filming I-22 then.

I've got video of I-69/MS 304 in DeSoto County on YouTube already. I filmed them last July, on the 4th. The way I came into Tunica, I came from Philadelphia (MS), utilizing MS 15 North, U.S. 82 West, and I-55 North to I-69 South/MS 304 South.

I-69 North:

I-69 South:

I drove Interstate 69 finally last December. Was surprised at how many were using it, though traffic tapered significantly at the west end. Is there any timetable as to when Interstate 22/269 will be built in Mississippi and when they may tie into Interstate 55?

Quick question: What's the speed limit on U.S. 78/I-22 in Alabama? Is it 65 or 70? Been awhile since I've driven it -- four or five years. I know the portion in Mississippi's 70, from doing a little research and from memory.

It is 65 in Alabama, and 70 through most of Mississippi with the exception of the 60 MPH speed limit through New Albany.

IIRC Parts of I-65 in Alabama are 70 mph or am I mistaken?

So, if I'm right, will they be raising it to 70 once it formally gets I-22 status?

You're correct about I-65 in Alabama.

Technically, since Future I-22's currently not an interstate but a rural U.S. Highway freeway, is why it's posted at 65 m.p.h. When it's finished and brought into the Interstate system, I'm sure, the speed limit will be bumped to 70. Wow! I just restated what you just said, pretty much. But I'm sure the speed limit will be bumped to 70 when it officially becomes an Interstate. What perplexes me, though, is how Mississippi has U.S. Highway freeways that are signed at 70 and Alabama doesn't. I know that they're different states, but are rural ones at that.

It is 65 in Alabama, and 70 through most of Mississippi with the exception of the 60 MPH speed limit through New Albany.

Thanks.

I believe in Alabama the only roads signed at 70 MPH are the interstates.  Non-interstate freeways are 65 MPH.

^^^

That kind of thing has never made sense to me.

If the freeway is built to a high enough standard, who cares what shield is on it?  Especially in this case since US 72 will be I-22 someday.   So, when they change the signs, all of a sudden the road is good for 5 more mph?  :confused:

(And Alabama is not the only state that does it or did it one time in the past.)

I agree, makes no sense at all.

Georgia 400/U.S. 19 north of Alpharetta is signed at 65, but is built to high enough standards that it could very well be signed at 70 or better. At one time, I could've sworn I saw some 75 m.p.h. signs north of the freeway end, but maybe I was crazy.

State's preference.  As mentioned, Alabama only allows 70 MPH on Interstate highways.  Meanwhile, you see 70 MPH on US 78 (and US 82 too outside Columbus) because Mississippi codified their law to allow 70 MPH on rural freeways in general, and not Interstates specifically.

Yes, I did.   :banghead:

Now, I have seen some stuff in fictional highways on parts U.S. 72 becoming an Interstate, but is there anything real happening there?

Not really.  Alabama's trying to plan something, but they don't have the money for it.  Mississippi's uninterested in the idea.

Just got back from Tunica, and am putting together some vids, profiling I-22 in Alabama (between Jasper and Coalburg Road). I've also got footage of I-69/S.R. 713. Will post them shortly.

Additionally, I am still mad at the nearly 40-mile 55 m.p.h. speed limit through Cleburne and Calhoun counties on I-20.

Alright, here's the first video in my I-22 mini-series. This video follows U.S. 78 from I-20 in Birmingham to Future I-22/Corridor X in Graysville.
