This US 69 Corridor segment is between FM 1003 in Kountze and FM 1943 near Warren and is known as the "US 69 Gateway to the Big Thicket." Actual construction timing will vary and the specific alignment is still being determined. The public is encouraged to visit the US 69 Corridor project page for more background about other potential segment areas in the Beaumont District area.

Proposed Improvements

The proposed 13-mile project includes widening US 69 from an existing two-lane roadway with shoulders (no median) to a four-lane divided roadway with shoulders, an evacuation lane, and a median. The public is invited to also review design concepts that include bridge, aesthetic design and signage options for input. Additional right of way (ROW) may be needed, but the exact amount is not known at this time, which could potentially displace residential and/or commercial properties.

Public Involvement

Based on early input from the public about the overall Beaumont District US 69 corridor, TxDOT developed potential design features for this segment. Review these design concepts and share your feedback through this quick and interactive online survey. We also invite you to share the survey link with others by email or social media, so that we can obtain as much feedback as possible.

Public involvement opportunities will be provided throughout the study process. The project team will seek input from stakeholders who live and work along the corridor, and who have a particular interest in its improvement.  All of the comments received from stakeholders will be considered by the project team as they conduct their analysis of the US 69 corridor.

Study Schedule

At a high level, the process includes:

  • Public involvement on Beaumont District US 69 Corridor: Begins Spring 2017 to gain early feedback and is ongoing throughout the project
  • Public meeting: Early 2019
  • Right-of-way acquisition: To be determined
  • Ready for bid: Anticipated 2021 for the Gateway to the Big Thicket segment based on if approval is received; however, timing of other segments has not been determined
  • Construction cost estimate: To be determined
