The virtual public meeting is now available beginning on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021, at 5 p.m. and will be available until Friday, March 12, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
TxDOT Paris District is proposing improvements to I-30, including reconstruction and widening of the four-lane freeway to six lanes, reconfiguration of access ramps, and incorporation of one-way frontage roads from FM 2642 to SH 34 in Hunt County, Texas. This notice advises the public that TxDOT will be conducting an online virtual public meeting on the proposed project.
Hunt County is experiencing rapid growth and the I-30 corridor is a vital part of the mobility in the area. The proposed conversion of the one-way frontage road as well as the added capacity of the freeway within the 12.34-mile project are needed to improve safety as well as congestion between FM 2642 and SH 34. Proposed improvements to County Road 2511/CR 2646, FM 1565, FM 36, FM 1903, and FM 1570 interchanges with I-30 would also enhance connectivity.
Although additional right of way would be required, no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time.
The virtual public meeting will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty in 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 meeting, please contact Mahi Naga, P.E. at (409) 767-3862 no later than 4 p.m., Monday, Feb. 22, 2021. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
