TxDOT announced on Sept. 29 that plans are being made to widen I-10 from Winnie to Hamshire Road, according to a statement.
The Texas Transportation Commission awarded a $43 million contract to Williams Brothers Construction. This project is the first phase in a series of four that will expand I-10 from two lanes to three lanes from Winnie to Beaumont.
A crash involving a truck tractor semi-trailer and a passenger vehicle shut down the westbound lanes of Interstate 10 in Orange County near FM 1442, and resulted in injuries, Sgt. Stephanie Davis of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported in a news release Sept. 30.
At least another week will tick by while Jefferson County’s elected commissioners and County Judge Jeff Branick ponder the management of the publicly-subsidized and privately-run Ford Park Entertainment Complex. The matter was set to be finalized by Oct.
While we harbor no disrespect for the Wall Street Journal who called us “that scrappy little paper from Southeast Texas,” we prefer to think of ourselves as simple seekers of the truth. We’re of the opinion that headlines and sound bites never tell the whole story. Our readers demand all the facts, facets and flavors of every story or event. And, they expect to be informed, educated and stirred to action.
