TX: TX 96 west of I-45?
« on: January 22, 2018, 10:22:18 pm »
TX 96 is prominently posted west of I-45, from I-45 itself and the next crossroad over (Calder Dr).  There are 2 WB reassurance markers west of I-45, per GMSV.  It appears TX 96 may end where it meets the older road it now connects to just before Butler Rd.  The postings go back to at least 2011 per GMSV.

However, the distance from the pavement change to TX 146 is 0.4 miles longer than the current TXDOT official length from the minute orders for TX 96...

Each state has its own mojo, and with Texas, compared to other states, I usually give more weight to what's in the route descriptions in the designation files, as opposed to any signage in the field that may disagree.
The designation file, two flavors of shapefiles, County Grid & Statewide Planning Map all agree at an end at I-45.
I'm doubtful that it's one of those occasional route changes from the minute orders that slips through the cracks and doesn't show up in the designation files. There's no sensible place for the route to end, and here it is some 6 years later, with no corroboration in the usual official sources.
Contractor error, I wonder?

I'm certainly no expert on Texas...

I am way more skeptical about TX 96 west of I-45 than I am about TX 3 duplexing with TX 146...
