The TxDOT Yoakum district is proposing to reconstruct and widen the existing I-10 roadway from US 90 (Alleyton Road South) to SH 71 in Columbus, in Colorado County, Texas. 

The existing roadway consists of a four-lane facility with two-lane, two-way frontage roads. The median is a flush grassy median with a cable barrier system. 

Proposed Improvements

  • Widen from 4 to 6 main lanes
  • Proposed lanes would consist of three 12-foot main lanes in each direction with 12-foot outside and inside shoulders
  • Convert 2-lane, 2-way frontage roads to 2-lane, 1-way frontage roads
  • Replace existing grassy median and cable divider with single slope concrete barrier median divider
  • Construct new bridge on new alignment over the Colorado River

Additional Information

The proposed project would require approximately 84.54 acres of additional ROW and would potentially result in 1 commercial displacement and 3 ancillary/outbuilding displacements. No residential displacements are anticipated.

Next Steps

  • Draft Environmental Assessment
  • Public Hearing
  • Environmental Decision
  • Begin Right-Of-Way Acquisition
  • Complete Final Design
  • Begin Construction

Public Involvement

This project is Segment II of the I-10 from SH 71 to FM 2761 project and Segment II includes the US 90 (Alleyton Road South) to SH 71 in Columbus project limits.
