DALLAS – In an ongoing effort to enhance state roadways and address congestion, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) approved four contracts in Dallas County including a project to build a two-lane westbound frontage road on I-30 between Cockrell Hill Road and Westmoreland Road in Dallas. The contract was awarded to Austin Bridge and Road, LP for $9.8 million.

“Like all of Texas, the urban areas of our state will continue to see rapid population growth,” said Commissioner Victor Vandergriff. “Relieving congestion on our roadways not only improves our quality of life, but also enhances economic opportunities. We are pleased to partner with state and local entities who share our vision of keeping Texas moving.”
