Same conundrum in my neck of the woods about turning 281 into an interstate. I’m on the fence with that also. We already prefer 281 to 35 for heading north to DFW.
I agree that it eventually will happen. For now your small town civic leaders, who for the most part have relatives that originally settled the towns, will pass on and their families won’t be as determined to keep their towns as they were.
So to those who want progress, just hang there. It’s coming but Texas DOT wheels move slow and about every 10 years, it is revisited.
