Project Overview

TxDOT Beaumont District is proposing to reconstruct and expand SH 105 from SH 326 in Sour Lake to Pine Island Bayou near Bevil Oaks in Hardin County, Texas. 

Proposed Benefits

The proposed project is anticipated to improve safety, enhance mobility and reduce congestion.

Proposed Improvements

The approximately 7.3-mile project includes:

  • Replacing the existing two-lane roadway with a four-lane divided roadway with shoulders and a median
  • Adding a raised median, shared-use lanes to accommodate bicyclists, and sidewalks for pedestrians within the Sour Lake city limits
  • Adding a 48-foot wide grass median, median crossovers, and four-foot wide inside shoulders with 10-foot wide outside shoulders to accommodate bicyclists outside the city limits
  • Developed drainage recommendations and three access alternatives for consideration near Countrywood Boulevard

Additional right of way would be needed to provide a maximum width of 300 feet, 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.
