I-69 in TX

<< < (537/542) > >>

MaxConcrete:
Bids were opened this week totaling $567 million for two major projects on I-69 and I-69E.

This project on I-69E in Kenedy county (just north of the Rio Grande Valley) will add overpasses to remove crossovers. In my opinion, most other work on I-69 is higher priority, since none of these crossovers has a traffic signal or any kind of slowdown. But it probably was "shovel ready", and other work is not.

The second project upgrades the section through Wharton to a 3x3 freeway, including a new bridge over the Colorado River, which surely is a reason for the high cost. Williams Brothers is currently building the section to the north.

Both of these are logical, Wharton is the next section moving South on I-69 from Houston, and the Kenedy County stretch takes I-69E to just South of Rivera

Bobby5280:
Is the bypass around Riviera funded and/or scheduled for construction?

It is currently listed at $178 million with bidding in June 2027.

There are multiple other large projects on US 77 going to bid before Riviera. Those other projects should be lower priority than Riviera, in my opinion, since they are on sections which don't have traffic signals. But that's the schedule.

sprjus4:
I believe this is because TxDOT is trying to push the completion of I-69E between I-37 and Brownsville entirely.
