TxDOT seeks to upgrade US 59 to interstate


TxDOT is hosting an open house tonight to discuss the expansion of US-59. The highway is being upgraded to interstate standards.

It will have at least four lanes, overpasses and frontage roads. The expansion will affect home owners and business between Queen City and Texarkana. Transportation officials ask for the public’s input to decide the best route.

“We just want everybody’s input if this is going to improve safety. Is this going to be worth constructing. Which routes you want to go and which process you want to go through,” said Marcus Sandifer.

The meeting is tonight from 5:00 to 7:00 at Morris Upchurch Middle School and Thursday from 5:00 to 7:00 at Liberty Eylau High School.
