The TxDOT Yoakum district is proposing to reconstruct and widen the existing I-10 roadway from SH 71 to FM 2761  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
  • Reconstruct and realign the Colorado River bridge

Additional Information

The proposed project would require approximately 67 acres of additional right-of-way. No displacements are anticipated at this time. 

Next Steps

  • Perform environmental studies and draft technical reports
  • Develop Draft Environmental Assessment
