LIT Announcement
City of Beaumont drainage project means alternate routes around LIT
10/25/2013

BEAUMONT – Due to a project on northbound Martin Luther King Parkway by the City of Beaumont, those wanting to get to Lamar Institute of Technology and the Tommy Williams Technology Training & Education Buildings will have to take an alternate route.

The project will close the northbound exit from Lavaca onto the MLK Parkway for several months. This is the portion of the feeder road that runs in front of the Tommy Williams Technology Training & Education Buildings.

There is no definite date when the construction will begin, but those traveling to LIT should be aware of the possibility and have an alternate route in mind.

All traffic leaving the Tommy Williams Technology Training & Education Buildings must leave via the drive at Villiva, near the South East Texas Food Bank.

Persons traveling to the Tommy Williams Technology Training & Education Buildings from Highway 69/287 should take the MLK exit and turn left onto the MLK Parkway. Traffic should stay on MLK. A cut-around will be in place at Villiva, near the food bank, for students and others to turn into the parking lot there.

Those traveling from MLK Parkway South and going to the Tommy Williams Technology Training & Education Buildings should take MLK Parkway South to Hunter Street. They should then turn right on Hunter, left onto Jim Gilligan Way (formerly Florida) and then left onto MLK Parkway. Traffic should stay on MLK until it gets to the cut-around at Villiva near the food bank.

For those leaving LIT and needed to go northbound on MLK, they should take Lavaca Street to Highland Avenue, then turn right on Highland. Traffic should follow Highland to Washington Boulevard and then take a right onto Washington and then left on northbound MLK Parkway.
