MARSHALL (KYTX) - A working group of local citizens, led by Harrison County Judge Hugh Taylor, met for the first time Tuesday to begin a study on the possible future route of Interstate 369 in the Marshall area.

Once completed, the national I-69 route will extend between Canada and Mexico. In Texas, the I-69 System will primarily follow US 59 once it is upgraded to be an Interstate highway. US 59 north of Tenaha is intended to function as I-369, eventually connecting the future national I-69 route along US 59 to I-30 in Texarkana. The first section of I-369, from I-30 to Loop 151 in Texarkana, was signed in May of 2013.

"I-69 and I-369 will follow the current US 59 footprint through Texas, but relief routes are needed around many of the towns US 59 passes through in order to prevent the loss or relocation of many homes and businesses in the towns," Judge Taylor said. "The purpose of this study group is to determine the best route for the highway to pass through Harrison County and, particularly, around the city of Marshall."

The group will be looking at the future transportation needs of the area and routes with the least amount of impact to citizens and businesses. They will also actively seek public input from local citizens, business owners and elected officials concerning possible routes.

"Having ready access to good and efficient transportation systems are vital to business and industry anywhere. Being at a crossroads of two interstate highways through this area can bring lots of businesses and jobs to the area. If new routes are needed for these highways, then we need to know the best location for them and have a say so in where they are located," Judge Taylor said.
