ROADWAY LOGISTICSOrange County EDC
Orange County is connected by five major highways with Interstate 10 cutting through the heart of the region with more than 50,000 daily travelers. In addition to Interstate and State Highways, Orange County offers a sophisticated network of Farm to Market and local thoroughfares.
INTERSTATE 10 PROJECT
Interstate 10, from Adams Bayou to the Louisiana border, is in the midst of a $68 million reconstruction project. The 16th Street overpass, ramps, the main lanes of the highway, the Simmons Drive overpass and the interchange will all be rebuilt to better accommodate traffic and community needs. Additionally, the Sabine River relief and Adams Bayou bridges will be resurfaced.
The most significant part of the project may not involve overpasses, bridges or the main lanes of I-10. TxDOT will build a new frontage road crossing the Union Pacific Railroad just east of 16th Street. This gives the city of Orange a continuous frontage road and the opportunity for more economic development.
TxDOT expects the project to be complete the end of 2017.
