BEAUMONT, Texas -
The northbound exit from Lavaca onto MLK Parkway (the on-ramp to northbound MLK) will be closed for several months due to a project initiated by the City of Beaumont beginning next week. The city is urging Lamar students and staff to use alternated route to campus.
All traffic leaving the LIT Center will have the ability to go north bound on MLK Parkway only. To get to the LIT Center from Lavaca, the suggested route is to turn right onto Jimmy Simmons Boulevard, and then left onto Jim Gilligan Way and then left onto MLK. Those traveling from Highway 69/287 can take the MLK exit and then turn left onto MLK Parkway.
The alternate routes have been provided in the attached map.
