In its monthly meeting yesterday, the Texas Transportation Commission approved $68 million for construction on IH-10 in Orange. Williams Brothers was awarded the project that will reconstruct IH-10 from West of Adams Bayou to West of the Sabine River as well as rehabilitate some frontage roads at select locations. It will also include the replacement of the SH 87 overpass, BU 90 overpass, and the Little Cypress Bayou Bridge – as well as construct a new bridge for a new Meeks Drive turnaround.  

“This construction is the next phase of work along IH-10 in Orange County,” said Tucker Ferguson, TXDOT Beaumont district engineer. “It will address some problem areas as well as make the stretch of interstate safer and smoother.”

Construction is expected to begin this summer and take approximately three and a half years to complete.
