Interstate 69 was released August 24. The book "is more than the story of a road," noted the August 25 Wall Street Journal "Bookshelf" column. Texas' Galveston County Daily News opined, "Matt Dellinger provides a fascinating and absorbing examination of a project that reveals as much about America today as it does about building an interstate."
