NACOGDOCHES, Texas — In 2013, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the I-69 Angelina and Nacogdoches Counties Committee performed a robust public outreach process to inform local citizens of the alignment options for I-69 in their counties and to solicit public comments and input. Nacogdoches County Committee members recommended an option that involves upgrading the existing U.S. 59 as far north as possible before moving onto a new location alignment west of Nacogdoches. A second option calls for upgrading the existing U.S. 59 to interstate standards.
Come see how TxDOT has used the committee’s recommendation and the U.S. 59 Upgrade Option for the development of I-69 through Nacogdoches County. TxDOT has allocated funding for this process and is conducting the open house to get public input to determine local preferences and highest priorities.
