This project is dedicated to improving safety and mobility along US 59, US 69 and SL 287 from State Highway (SH) 103 East to just north of Farm to Market (FM) 3439 (Spence Street). It is also designed to improve vertical clearances at the bridges.
This project was identified as a near term improvement needed in Angelina County according to the US 59 Corridor Master Plan Study. "Near term” improvements would improve safety under present and projected traffic loads until the long-term solution, proposed I-69, is constructed.
In 2008, TxDOT received a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issuing clearance of the environmental document and final approval of the schematic. Due to budgetary constraints, the project was divided into three phases:
Phase I and III
These phases were completed in Spring 2017 and included:
This phase includes:
