Council unveils TxDOT Interstate 10 expansion plans


Last night, after a period of executive session, Sealy City Council displayed the Texas Department of Transportation’s recently completed vast plans for the city’s southeastern section of Interstate 10.

The expansion project will begin outside the city’s eastern edges and cross through the heart of Sealy coming out the other side.

“This project will go from Brookshire all the way past [FM] 3538,” said City Manager Larry Kuciemba.

“Some people said it was going to be two or three years before we got this far. Well it’s been three months and here we are,” Kuciemba said.

TxDOT added several frontage roads and safety corrections to its schematics along the interstate to reduce traffic accidents on the high-volume passage.

Council and city leadership believe this completed project will help catapult Sealy into greater levels of economic prosperity.

The plans are posted at city hall so citizens can stop by and review them at any time.

TxDOT officials intend to be at the next council meeting May 10 to take citizen comments and explain the concept and planning stages thoroughly.
