TxDOT is studying alignment alternatives for the US 59 Corrigan Relief Route (future I-69) on a new location. The relief route would be designed to meet interstate standards for possible future designation as I-69, which would alleviate congestion through the Polk County community of Corrigan, as well as increase safety and mobility along the US 59 corridor.
TxDOT is conducting an environmental assessment, or an EA. The EA will include citizen comments and participation and will ultimately provide a road map for improving US 59 to interstate standards.
Currently there is funding to complete the environmental study and begin right-of-way acquisition, but no funding for construction. The construction schedule will be determined once funding becomes available.
The new location alignment would be a four-lane access controlled roadway with no frontage roads.
We recommend the public review public meetings and materials. Contact us with any questions.
