The purpose of the hearing is to present the proposed construction of 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 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 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. The project would include barrier-separated sidewalks located along the westbound outer lane of the frontage road for pedestrian accommodation, and a wide shared-use path would be constructed along the eastbound outer frontage road lane (also barrier separated) for both bicyclists and pedestrian accommodation. The shared-use path would connect with the existing/planned shared-use facilities in the cities of Garland, Rowlett, and Rockwall as a part of the Regional Veloweb per North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) plans. At Bayside Drive bridge a sidewalk would be constructed along the northbound outer lane, and a shared-use path would be constructed along the southbound outer lane of the Bayside Drive bridge for both bicyclists and pedestrian accommodation. Both the sidewalk and shared-use path would connect with planned developments to be located north and south of IH 30.
