Texas Department of Transportation - Beaumont
8350 Eastex Freeway
SH 105 Widening to BS 105T
Montgomery County Line, BS 105T
The facility had 4 crashes, 0 serious injuries and 0 fatalities during the period from 2015 to 2017. Improving congestion on this facility could save users in excess of 35,000 hours of travel time per lane-mile. Congestion is adversely affecting the travel time and reliability for freight movement. The truck volume on the facility is roughly 1,337 trucks per day and this represents 13.7% percent of the facility's AADT. The existing facility consists of two travel lanes (one in each direction) with ten foot shoulders. SH 105 is a major east-west route. Projects are already scheduled to widen SH 105 in Harris County working east to Liberty County. This project is needed to provide system continuity with these future projects.
Widen from 2 to 4 lanes divided
The purpose of this project is to reduce crashes, serious injuries and fatalities; 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. The purpose is also to upgrade this facility to the ultimate four lane section to provide continuity with future planned projects widening SH 105 from the west.
