The TxDOT Beaumont District is conducting a virtual public meeting with in-person options to present information and get feedback on the modified relief route alternatives for the US 69 Woodville-Colmesneil Relief Route, from south of Black Creek to south of Recreational Road (RR) 255 in Tyler County. US 69 is a south-north highway that runs from Port Arthur to Denison, TX and is designated as a hurricane evacuation route.​

The purpose of this project is to provide a relief route to support safe and efficient south/north movement of people and goods between Colmesneil and Warren. Based on public input received during the October 2023 public meetings, TxDOT is presenting two modified relief route alternatives for public review and input


The approximate 25-mile proposed project would include a new location roadway. The ultimate roadway would generally include two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, a northbound 13-foot outside shoulder to be used as a hurricane evacuation lane, a southbound 10-foot outside shoulder, and two-lane frontage roads in each direction that would require approximately 400 feet of right-of-way (ROW) width. Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations would be considered throughout the project.
