This belongs in fictional since I-6 doesn't exist.

Freer to Corpus Christi - I-6 - is an official proposal. Its not fictional.

I-6 should go ahead and be signed on the freeway parts of SR 44, north on SR 358, cosigned on I-37, US 181, and along SR 35 for the freeway parts as they are extended east...

Agreed.  I have always wanted the Harbor Bridge and the freeway northeast of there to Aransas Pass to carry an interstate shield.  That would unfortunately require one of my most hated things:  a route that is cosigned and dies in the cosign.  Whether it be two routes that terminate together on the same pavement or, one terminates and the other continues.  You could truncate I-37 about 6ish miles, then you have to change 147 miles of mile markers and exit numbers!

In the scenario of an I-6 route being built thru Corpus Christi and over the new Harbour Bridge to Aransas Pass and farther East, it would open a new possibility for I-37. Make I-37 consume the TX-358 freeway and terminate at North Padre Island. I-6, coming by way of TX-44, would have a short concurrency with I-37 on the North end of the TX-358 freeway. Then I-6 would turn East and take over the last couple or so miles of freeway currently used by I-37.
