The Texas Department of Transportation Beaumont District is proposing to reconstruct and expand I-10 and US 69 where they converge in Beaumont, Jefferson County, Texas, as part of the I-10 Interchanges Project (formerly known as the I-10/US 69 Interchange Improvement Project).
The proposed project is anticipated to improve mobility, reduce congestion and also improve emergency evacuation.
The approximately five-mile project includes:
In addition, changes to the Maury Meyers Bridge (Liberty/Laurel Overpass) may be necessary to meet freight standards.
To help improve mobility for the local area, TxDOT is also proposing to relocate some I-10 ramp locations, which may include Delaware Street; Gladys Avenue; Calder Avenue; College Street; and Washington Boulevard. TxDOT wants to understand which local streets are accessed the most to get to and from I-10; we encourage the public to provide feedback about ramp location preferences.
Additional right of way may be needed, but the exact amount is not yet known, which could potentially displace residential and commercial properties. Please review the right-of-way project page and the landowner’s rights publications, which contains more information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program concerning services and benefits for displaced persons and businesses if needed.
