Purpose The TxDOT Lufkin District will be conducting an online virtual public meeting with an in-person option to present the proposed upgrade of US 59 and reconstruction of the US 59/US 259 interchange to meet interstate standards from FM 343 to 1.2 miles north of US 259 in Nacogdoches County, Texas. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the virtual public meeting, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions, and leave written comments.

The 2.5-mile-long project would include:

  • Reconstructing US 59 mainlanes to provide four 12-foot travel lanes, two in each direction, 10-foot wide inside shoulders with concrete barrier and 12-foot wide outside shoulders
  • Constructing northbound and southbound frontage roads with two 12-foot lanes, four-foot inside shoulders and 10-foot outside shoulders
  • Constructing 10-foot wide shared use paths along proposed US 59 frontage roads six-foot wide with sidewalks along US 259 throughout project limits
  • Reconfiguring the US 59/US 259 interchange to provide new direct connector bridges for northbound US 59 and southbound US 259

The proposed improvements, subject to final design considerations, would require approximately 55 acres of additional right of way and potentially displace 15 residences and six non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses. Information about the TxDOT Relocation Assistance Program and services and benefits for those displaced and other affected property owners, as well as information about the tentative schedule for right-of-way acquisition and construction, can be obtained from the TxDOT district office by calling 936-633-4383.

Accessibility The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English or Spanish is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public meeting, please contact Rhonda Oaks, at 936-633-4395 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Wednesday, May 11, 2022. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
