Purpose: TxDOT will hold an open house public meeting to discuss the proposed improvements to United States Highway (US) 69 at Pine Island Bayou from Tram Road to Cooks Lake Road in Jefferson and Hardin counties.
   
Description: The proposed project includes:
  • Constructing new continuous northbound and southbound frontage roads along US 69 between Tram Road and Cooks Lake Road
  • Building new frontage road bridges over Pine Island Bayou
  • Removing the existing U-turn located south of Pine Island Bayou to improve mobility
  • Removing the existing boat ramp located north of Pine Island Bayou, given the addition of the frontage roads and bridges
    • TxDOT initially identified three existing boat ramps providing access to Pine Island Bayou that could be used by the public instead of the US 69 boat ramp
    • These ramps are located at US 96 at Village Creek bridge north of Lumberton, Village Creek State Park access ramp on Park Road 74 in northeast Lumberton, and Lower Neches Valley Authority (LNVA) Saltwater Barrier boat ramp on Bigner Road in Beaumont
    • These ramps are located approximately 8 miles from the US 69 ramp (please note there is a $3 entrance fee for adults into Village Creek State Park)
  • The project is not anticipated to require the acquisition of additional right of way; therefore, no residential or commercial displacements are anticipated
The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 16, 2014, and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and TxDOT.
