DALLAS/ROCKWALL COUNTIES – TxDOT is proposing improvements to I-30 frontage roads from Bass Pro Drive in Dallas County to Dalrock Road in Rockwall County. TxDOT will be conducting a public hearing on the proposed project.

The public hearing will be held on Thursday, May 31, in the Terrace Room at Hella Shrine, 2121 Rowlett Road, Garland, TX 75043.

Maps and displays will be available for viewing at an Open House at 6 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 7 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the proposed project.

The proposed project includes constructing a continuous six-lane frontage road system crossing Lake Ray Hubbard along I-30, between Bass Pro Drive and Dalrock Road, in Garland and Rowlett, Texas, respectively. The project cost is approximately $138 million and is anticipated to begin in 2021 and be completed by 2023. The length of the proposed project is approximately 2.24 miles.

The improvements also include the construction of a new five-lane bridge for Bayside Drive (two lanes traveling southbound and three lanes traveling northbound) with left-turn lanes, a southbound Dalrock bypass, the reconstruction of the interchange at Dalrock Road to include a one-way Dalrock Road direct connector roadway from the eastbound I-30 frontage roads to northbound Dalrock Road, and associated ramp modifications.
