Project Overview

At the request of the City of Tyler and the Tyler MPO, TxDOT is conducting a feasibility study to explore options for making improvements along a five-mile segment of US 69, beginning 0.6 miles north of State Loop (SL) 323 (Amherst) to FM 2813 in Tyler, Texas.  


US 69 is an approximately 375-mile long highway that connects the cities of Port Arthur at the Gulf Coast and Denison in North-Central Texas. This highway links major cities such as Beaumont, Tyler and Denison to small rural towns and serves as a hurricane evacuation route from Port Arthur to I- 20 just north of Tyler. US 69 runs through Tyler’s central business district, providing access to local medical facilities, schools, businesses and other important locations.
