Description:

To continue developing I-69 Texas, TxDOT is improving existing highway routes to interstate quality. US 281 in Premont is part of the I-69 Texas system, and before this road can be designated as an interstate, US 281 in Premont must be upgraded to interstate standards. To minimize overall impacts to Premont including homes and businesses, a relief route east of Premont has been identified as the preferred solution to upgrade US 281 in Premont to an interstate quality road. On Aug. 11, 2011, the Premont City Council passed a resolution supporting the east relief route option.

The proposed relief route will be built to interstate design standards and include:

  • Four 12-foot-wide main lanes, two lanes in each direction
  • four-foot-wide inside shoulders
  • 10-foot-wide outside shoulders
  • 48-foot-wide grassy center median
  • Access roads in some locations to provide access to adjacent properties
  • Main lanes will accommodate 70 mph speed
