Additionally, thereís still a 55 mph work zone speed limit all the way up to SH-99, however traffic was easily moving in excess of 75 mph. Itís a pointless limit that needs to be reverted back to 65 mph. Thereís zero work occurring.

The signing of the upgraded sections of US-59 as I-69 is not automatic upon completion of construction. Extending the I-69 designation over sections of US-59 that have recently been upgraded to interstate standards has to be signed off by the FHWA, then AASHTO before I-69 sign can go up on those sections.

The AASHTO has two meetings where US and interstate route number applications are considered: the Spring Meeting that is held in May, and the Annual Meeting that's held in October. I haven't seen the route numbering decisions from AASHTO's spring meeting. If someone has those decisions, please post them.

The last route change approvals are posted here:

As you can see there is significant delay between the meeting time and the posting time with a 4 month gap between them.
