Interstate 30 provides an important east-west connection for travel and trade. As the Interstate System ages, and population and trade increases in Texas, it is necessary to assess the current safety and capacity needs and plan for the future. This corridor study will identify transportation needs in northeast Texas along I-30 from Farm-to-Market Road (FM) 2642 near the Rockwall/Hunt county line to the Texas/Arkansas state line in Texarkana. It is approximately 145 miles in length, crossing six counties. It is located within the TxDOT Paris and Atlanta Districts. The TxDOT Dallas District is conducting separate studies to identify improvements from the Rockwall/Hunt county line into the Dallas metropolitan area; however, given its proximity to the westernmost study limit, the Dallas District will also be participating in the corridor study.
I-30 Corridor Study Working Group
To best understand community needs and concerns, local communities and leaders will be engaged for the study. Similar to previous TxDOT studies, an I-30 Working Group has been established. The Working Group will help TxDOT identify and assess the transportation needs in the corridor, inform and gather input from the public, and recommend priorities and next steps for TxDOT and other local entities.
This I-30 Working Group comprises 21 elected officials and other stakeholders along the I-30 corridor and includes representatives from:
