TxDOT is proposing to improve I-30 from Linkcrest Drive to I-820 in Tarrant County, Texas. All comments must be received on or before Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020.
The proposed improvements would include the widening of the existing travel lanes to provide three travel lanes in each direction (plus auxiliary lanes) and provide continuous one-way frontage roads with pedestrian and bicycle shared-use paths for approximately 3.3 miles. The I-30 interchanges at RM 2871 and Spur 580 would be reconstructed. U-turns would be provided at Linkcrest Drive and Chapel Creek Boulevard. Alemeda Street, the I-820 frontage roads between Westpoint Boulevard and North Normandale Street, and the direct connector from southbound I-820 to westbound I-30 would be reconstructed. The project would provide 18 feet and six inches of vertical clearance for Freight Mobility Corridors.
New denial of access would be required along the frontage roads from adjacent properties at new ramp junctions. Approximately 3.5 acres of additional right of way is required. Although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time.
How to sign up for in-person hearing appointment:
Additionally, TxDOT is providing an in-person option for individuals who would like to participate in-person instead of online. In-person attendees will be able to view the same presentation delivered in the online public hearing, which will be playing on a screen, review hard copies of project materials, ask questions of TxDOT staff and consultants from a socially distanced approach, and leave written comments. The in-person option will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the TxDOT Fort Worth District Office, RTC Training Room, 2501 S.W. Loop 820, Fort Worth, TX 76133. Attendance at the in-person option will be by appointment only. Individuals wishing to attend the in-person option must call (817) 370-6603 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, to make an appointment. In recognition of COVID-19, enhanced safety measures will be applied at the in-person option, including a requirement to wear a face mask, submit to a temperature check prior to entry, have an appointment, and follow social distancing practices. If anyone arrives without an appointment, they may be asked to wait outside to ensure we maintain appropriate occupancy within the hearing room.
The virtual public hearing and the in-person option will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public hearing or in-person option, please contact (817) 370-6603 no later than no later than 4 p.m. CT, Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2020. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
