Cultivating a Beneficial US 69 Relief Route
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Tyler District is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a US 69 relief route around the City of Jacksonville. The proposed new-location facility will consist of a four-lane controlled-access divided highway with a depressed median. Current Texas Administrative Code guidelines state new location facilities should be controlled access, meaning driveways or other access points will not connect directly to the roadway. Instead, potential interchange locations will be proposed based on traffic projections.
The concept for a US 69 Relief Route dates back to the late 1970s. Over the years, a number of studies were done to determine its need and potential configuration.
The US 69 Jacksonville Relief route is anticipated to be between 10-13 miles long depending on the alignment selected, beginning at existing US 69 just south of Loop 456 and terminating at existing US 69 north of Jacksonville.
