Purpose: TxDOT proposes the widening of I-10 from the Kansas City Southern (KCS) Railroad (near Vidor) to FM 1442 in Orange County.
Description: Currently, the existing roadway consists of two lanes in each direction. The proposed improvements include:
  • Adding one lane in each direction (a total of 3 lanes in each direction)
  • A bridge-class culvert (open drain under the road) will be replaced to enhance drainage
The proposed project would be constructed within the existing right of way; no new right of way would be required. No relocations or displacements would occur.

Any interested person may request that a public hearing be held covering the social, economic and environmental effects of the project on or before Tuesday, June 2, 2015. In the event a public hearing is requested, one will be scheduled and notices will be published about the hearing date and location.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by TxDOT pursuant of 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated Dec. 16, 2014, and executed by FHWA and TxDOT.
Deadline: Written requests must be delivered or mailed on or before June 2, 2015.
