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 identified 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.

This I-30 Working Group comprised 21 elected officials and other stakeholders along the I-30 corridor and includes representatives from:
