Neches River Bridge
If there is any project in our part of Southeast Texas that has generated quite a bit of attention, it has to be the I-10 Neches River bridge in Beaumont.
The bridge, also known as the Purple Heart Memorial bridge, is being completely rebuilt. The project involves removing and replacing the old structure with what is called a segmental bridge. The new bridge will look very much like the one on I-10 crossing the Trinity River.
Our latest video looks at the early stages of the project...and deconstructs some of the rumors about how traffic will be affected.
