|Purpose:||The purpose of the public meeting is to solicit public comment on the proposed improvements to an approximately 17-mile section of I-30 from Bass Pro Drive To West of Farm-To-Market Road (FM) 2642 in Dallas and Rockwall counties, Texas.
|Description:||Proposed improvements to I-30 would reconstruct and/or widen this highway from Bass Pro Road in Dallas County to west of FM 2642 in Rockwall County, approximately 17 miles through the Cities of Garland, Rowlett, Rockwall, Mobile City, Fate, and Royse City. Transportation improvements are needed on I-30 to address current and projected traffic demands and facility deficiencies, and to establish a safe and efficient thoroughfare by which to provide goods and services in the eastern portion of Dallas‐Fort Worth (DFW).

Additional right of way is anticipated to be required along this segment of I-30.
