Here is What I Want Beulah Residents to Know

The project to connect the interstate to 9-Mile road at Beulah road will require a total of 104.5 feet.

104.5 feet total.  See the diagram below, from the DOT study....

The southbound artery from the I-10 to Beulah road will be 104.5 feet in width total.  Currently, Beulah road and associated ROW encompass 100 feet.

So to all of those who are concerned that the 4-laning of Beulah Road from the I-10 to 9-Mile road will "Swallow" entire subdivisions, I want you to know that we currently have 100 feet with the existing Beulah Road, and we need a whopping 4.5 feet more to do what is pictured above.

No Subdivisions swallowed, no homes demolished---particularly if we choose alternative 5--the #1 rated alternative.  For more information visit

Alternative 5 is the highest rated option of the 7 alternative corridors for the Beulah Beltway project....
