Downtown ramp to I-10 closed for months

Travelers and commuters who work in downtown Beaumont may have noticed the onramp leading from downtown to eastbound Interstate 10 is closed. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, it will remain that way for several months.

TxDOT spokesperson Sarah Dupre says the ramp closure is part of the ongoing bridge project, the reconstruction of the Purple Heart Memorial Bridge, also known as the Neches River Bridge. She said the ramp, along with three eastbound lanes, would reopen at the end of the year. At that time, Dupre said, construction on the westbound side of the bridge would begin.
