When:

Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Purpose:

The purpose of the public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed widening of I-10 from East of 3247 to the Sabine River Bridge in Orange County, Texas. The meeting will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions. Comments must be received on or before Friday, Feb. 22, 2019, to be a part of the official public meeting record.

Description:

The proposed 4.3-mile project includes widening I-10 from FM 3247 to the Sabine River Bridge from four to six 12-foot wide travel lanes, with 10-foot wide inside shoulders and 10-foot wide outside shoulders. A concrete median barrier would remain. The project also includes widening the existing I-10 Adam’s Bayou bridge to provide additional travel lanes and auxiliary lanes between the entrance/exit ramps to improve merge movements. The existing bridge at Sabine River Relief would be replaced with a modern structure meeting current design standards. All work is proposed to occur within the existing right of way (ROW); therefore, no displacements or relocations of residences and businesses would occur. 

Special Accommodations:

The public meeting will be conducted in English. Persons interested in attending who have special communication or accommodation needs, or require an interpreter, are encouraged to contact TxDOT Public Information Officer Sarah Dupre at (409) 898-5745. Requests should be made at least five days before the event. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.
