In an effort to alert drivers and manage traffic incidents, the Texas Department of Transportation is installing warning signs along Interstate 10 in Beaumont.
Signs are currently being installed with the warning “DETOUR WHEN FLASHING, IH10 CLOSED IN Beaumont” to let drivers know if the interstate is closed in Beaumont, according to a press release from TxDOT.
The signs would also provide an alternate route depending on where they are installed. Signs are being placed throughout Jefferson, Orange and Chambers Counties and will detour drivers to State Highway 73, U.S. Highway 69 or F.M. 105.
The signs are a part of incident management and designed to not only warn drivers of an accident, but save them time and frustration from being delayed due to traffic. The detour signs should be completed within the next three weeks.
