I-27 only exists within Texas at this time and stretches from Lubbock to Amarillo. This extension would allow it to reach the Mexican border and possibly up to Denver, Colorado.

The extension of the road would also make Big Spring home to two interstate highways. Big Spring would be in the company of five other Texas cities who have intersecting highways within their communities.
