The TxDOT Beaumont District is proposing improvements to the SH 63/LA 8 bridge at the Sabine River; this bridge crosses the Texas and Louisiana state line near the cities of Burkeville, Texas and Leesville, Louisiana.
The purpose of the proposed project is to provide a structurally sound bridge‐crossing that allows access for Texas and Louisiana motorists across the Sabine River, with a focus on providing a bridge with adequate width and height to safely accommodate existing and foreseeable future transportation needs with a minimum 20‐year design life.
Project Needs and Issues:
TxDOT is seeking public input on potential alternatives for this project, and will be hosting a public meeting sometime in the Summer of 2018. The public is encouraged to sign up for email updates to receive future project updates.
