Where:

Virtual Public Meeting
*This will be a virtual public meeting via a pre-recorded video presentation
(no in-person public meeting)

When:

Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020, by 4 p.m.
The pre-recorded presentation video will be available for comment by 4 p.m. A video will be posted near the bottom of this web page, by that time.

Purpose:

The TxDOT Beaumont District is proposing improvements to the US 69 and SH 73 interchange southeast of Beaumont near Port Arthur in Jefferson County, Texas. The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to gather public input on the proposed improvements along US 69 and SH 73. The virtual public meeting will consist of a pre-recorded video presentation explaining the proposed project, which includes both audio and video components, along with other exhibits and materials for review. All comments must be received on or before Friday, Oct. 9, 2020, to be part of the virtual public meeting record.

Description:

The proposed improvements include:

  • Reconfiguring the interchange from the cloverleaf configuration to a turbine (spiral) configuration
  • Adding direct connectors
  • Adding mainlane improvements
  • Improving frontage road and ramps
  • Adding retaining walls and culverts
  • Widening and replacing bridges

The proposed project would occur entirely within the existing right of way and would not result in any displacements.

Special Accommodations:

The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language, or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. To make arrangements for any of these needs, please contact Sarah Dupre, TxDOT Public Information Officer, at (409) 898-5745 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 21, 2020. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.

Memorandum of Understanding:

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 9, 2019, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
