I-10 construction begins today in Orange County

Posted: Updated:
Construction work on a $68-million Texas Department of Transportation project began Thursday in Orange County.

Drivers will notice work along the eastbound lanes near Simmons Drive as crews work to widen the shoulders.

This is the first phase of the project. The contractor, Williams Brothers, 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 SH87 overpass, BU 90 overpass and the Little Cypress Bayou Bridge as well as construct a new bridge for a new Meeks Drive turnaround.

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.

The entire project is expected to last three years.
