Newly proposed I-14 would link five southern states

I-14

A group has proposed a new interstate that would begin in Texas and end in Georgia, linking five southern states.

The proposed Interstate 14 would begin in west Texas (I-10) and end in Augusta, Georgia (I-20), passing through Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama along the way.

The proposed new I-14 was introduced by a non-profit group, the Youth Infrastructure Coalition. They say that I-14 will benefit residents and fight poverty by “connect[ing] rural communities to cities and to one another making travel easier and aiding medical facilities in rural areas in their struggle for survival.” They also argue that I-14 would provide better interstate access for the Port of Savannah and that it would connect various military bases, allowing for better training activities and more rapid deployment. Advocates for I-14 also hope that the new interstate would relieve traffic congestion on existing interstates.

I-14 supporters say that “the first portion officially opened on January 26, 2017 in Killeen, TX and Fort Hood.”
