Interstate 369 (Texas)
Interstate 369 (I-369) is a south–north Interstate spur route running through Northeast Texas. Once complete, the freeway will begin at an interchange with Interstate 69/U.S. Highway 84 east of Tenaha and head northward to Carthage, Marshall, Jefferson, and Atlanta before terminating at an interchange with I-49/US 59/US 71 north of Texarkana. For its entire length, I-369 will share its alignment with US 59.

At its November 15, 2012 meeting, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) approved a 118-mile-long (190 km) I-369, to connect I-69 in Tenaha to I-30 in Texarkana. The Federal Highway Administration approved the designation on May 24, 2013, and the Texas Transportation Commission followed suit on May 30, 2013. This action also finalized the designations of other Interstates in Texas. This action meant that the Texas Department of Transportation could commence the signing of I-369, as well as the other route segments cited, at their discretion. The signage was installed and revealed on September 23, 2013.
The status of the Texarkana to Tenaha segment is unfinished; it is currently only in the planning and development stage. The proposed route of I-369 is to go from Loop 151 in Texarkana, following US 59 to the junction of US 59/US 84/future I-69 in Tenaha. It may also be extended north from its current terminus at I-30 to a future interchange with Interstate 49 north of Texarkana.
