TxDOT announced that the $68 million dollar project to reconstruct Interstate 10 from West of Adams Bayou in Orange to West of the Sabine River is about to begin and warned drivers to be wary of workers along the roadway.

The contractor, Williams Brothers, will reconstruct the tract of highway as well as rehabilitate some frontage roads at select locations. It will also include the replacement of the S.H. 87 overpass, B.U. 90 overpass and the Little Cypress Bayou Bridge, as well as construct a new bridge for a new Meeks Drive turnaround.In the next few weeks, drivers will notice work along the eastbound lanes near Simmons Drive as crews widen the shoulders. Throughout the duration of the project, the speed limit will be lowered along the approximately four-mile work zone to 65 mph while workers are present.
