Texas Department of Transportation - Beaumont
8350 Eastex Freeway
FM 2025 Bridge Turn Lanes
US 59, SL 573
The facility had 3 crashes, 0 serious injuries and 0 fatalities during the period from 2015 to 2017. The truck volume on the facility is roughly 486 trucks per day and this represents 7.5% percent of the facility's AADT. The existing roadway consists of two travel lanes (one in each direction) with minimal shoulders. The lack of turn lanes contributes to significant queuing on FM 2025, particularly at US 59 when making left turns onto the frontage US 59 frontage roads.
Add additional bridge width and turn lanes
The purpose of this project is to reduce congestion on the facility and improve the reliability of peak-period travel times; reduce congestion and improve travel time reliability for freight movement on this facility; improve pavement condition on the facility and increase its pavement rating. By providing turn lanes, the proposed project should improve safety by reducing rear-end collisions and reduce congestion by eliminating queuing at cross roads and the US 59 frontage roads.

This proposed project will improve highway/freight LOS. The turn lanes proposed in the project
should help reduce queuing of vehicles for turns and should help reduce rear-end collisions. Also, widening the roadway travel lanes and shoulders should result in improved bike level of service by providing room to accommodate bicyclist.
Please see the support letter for this project from Liberty County and the resolution of support from the City of Cleveland. Both are attached to this application.
