Construction Open House - I-10/Major Drive Jefferson County


Where: Ben J. Rodgers Regional Visitors Center
5055 I-10 South
Beaumont, TX 77705
When: Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015
3 p.m. – 7 p.m.
   
Purpose: The purpose of the open house is to present information, answer questions and get feedback about the approved construction to rebuild the I-10 and FM 364/Major Drive intersection and frontage road improvements in Jefferson County.
   
Description: The project includes the following improvements:
  • Reconstruct the I-10 and FM 364/Major Drive intersection 
    • I-10 will be rebuilt as an overpass across FM 364/Major Drive; currently, FM 364/Major Drive is an overpass across I-10.
    • The I-10 overpass will be striped as two lanes in each direction but can accommodate three lanes in each direction for future growth.
    • The current “jug handle” design of the I-10 and FM 364/Major Drive intersection will be reconstructed as eastbound and westbound frontage roads with turnarounds.
    • Currently there is only an eastbound I-10 frontage road at this intersection; a new frontage road will be added for westbound local traffic also.
  • Improve FM 364/Major Drive
    • FM 364/Major Drive will be widened to five lanes—two lanes in each direction, with a center turning lane.
    • The FM 364 curve just to the north of the interchange will be slightly straightened to improve safety.
