I-69 on Google Maps in Houston
« on: August 27, 2012, 03:32:51 PM »

Has anyone else noticed that I-69 appears to be on google maps running through Houston?
Surely its not signed this way yet...

No idea if signs are up yet. Google (or rather one of their mappers) likes to jump the gun on Interstates.

All signs still say US59, not sure when new ones will come up, maybe when they decide what to do on the southern half of the city or through it for that matter. But as of 08/27/2012, no new signs about it now being I-69/US59.

There is definitely no Interstate 69 signage on the Southwest Freeway (US 59 south of downtown). But there are two "Future Interstate Corridor" signs in the Sugar Land area, which I saw today. Of course, the Southwest Freeway is not part of the official I-69 designation so no signs are expected.

I drove on the north section of US 59 which has been officially designated (Bush Airport to IH 610 north) last week and there were no I-69 signs at that time.
