TxDOT plans to restructure I-10 and US 69 in Beaumont, Texas, aiming to add a lane to both directions of traffic along a five mile strip from Walden Road to Delaware Street, as well as interchanges stretching out to Fannett Road and N 7th Street. Additionally, TxDOT may relocate certain ramps along I-10. The goal is to make the roads safer for now and the future as TxDOT projections predict there will be over 50% more cars on the roads by 2040.
Open Houses were held in April and September, with a public hearing to follow this winter. Construction is currently scheduled to begin winter of 2021. TxDOT will have to assert eminent domain laws to take the necessary land, affecting homeowners and business owners.
