I-30 Corridor Project
I-30 from Linkcrest to I-820
The Texas Department of Transportation is proposing improvements to Interstate 30 in west Tarrant County. The approximately 3.4-mile project in the cities of Fort Worth and White Settlement would focus on improving safety and mobility from Linkcrest Drive to I-820. The proposed improvements would include widening I-30 from a four-lane freeway (two mainlanes each direction) to a six-lane freeway (three mainlanes each direction); improvements to the I-30 and Spur 580 interchange to reduce congestion and enhance safety; and construction of continuous two-lane, one-way frontage roads throughout the project limits.
TxDOT conducted a virtual public hearing Sept. 22-Oct. 7., 2020.
The project is currently estimated to be awarded to a contractor in 2024.
I-820 to Chisholm Trail Parkway
Interstate 30 is one of the main east-west corridors through the cities of Fort Worth, White Settlement, Benbrook, and the towns of Westover Hills and Westworth Village in Tarrant County.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Tarrant County was ranked as the fifth fastest growing county in the United States between 2010 and 2019. This growth is the catalyst for the need to expand the existing transportation infrastructure.
The TxDOT Fort Worth District conducted this corridor study of I-30, between I-820 and Chisholm Trail Parkway, to develop proposed improvements that would increase capacity, improve safety and mobility and ease congestion in the area. The study limits extended approximately nine miles long and through portions of the cities of Fort Worth, White Settlement, Benbrook, and the towns of Westover Hills and Westworth Village, located within Tarrant County, Texas.
A town hall meeting was held on Feb. 21, 2023 on the study. Materials at the meeting included:
- Schematic 1 – I-30 from I-820 to Las Vegas Trail
- Schematic 2 – I-30 from Las Vegas Trail to SH 183
- Schematic 3 – I-30 from SH 183 to Halloran Street
- Schematic 4 – I-30 from Halloran Street to Camp Bowie Blvd.
- Schematic 5 – I-820 from Chapin Road to I 30
- Schematic 6 – I-820 from I-30 to Clifford Street
- Schematic 7 – I-30/SH 341 interchange and I-30/SH 183 interchange
- Schematic 1 – I-30 from Camp Bowie Blvd. to Clover Lane
- Schematic 2 – I-30 from Clover Lane to Chisolm Trail Parkway
The purpose of the I-30 West Corridor Study was to evaluate the reconstruction and widening of the existing I-30 corridor, consider potential express lanes, evaluate improvements to the frontage roads, ramps and cross streets including the I-30/I-820, I-30/Spur 341, and I-30/SH 183 interchanges within the project limits and add shared-use paths along the project for improved bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.
Public involvement was a key component of the study. Interested residents as well as property and business owners can view summaries of public meetings held in March 2022.
The public can review information, review schematic plans and all presented material, and review submitted comments regarding the proposed design, right of way and potential environmental effects provided during the March 2022 public meetings. The following is the public meeting schedule:
- Public Meeting 1: Virtual and In-person Public Meeting - March 22 & 24, 2022
I-30 between I-820 and Camp Bowie Boulevard
With the I-30 West Corridor study completed, a portion of the project is now in the design schematic and environmental study stage of the project. The limits of the design schematic and environmental study extend along I-30 between I-820 and Camp Bowie Boulevard. Additional public involvement will be scheduled for this phase of the project.
US 287 to Cooper Street
TxDOT is proposing to reconstruct I-30 from US 287 to Cooper Street. This project would include additional mainlanes, TEXpress Lanes, entrance/exit ramp adjustments, auxiliary lane and frontage road improvements, and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.
This 12-mile project is not currently funded. The estimated construction cost is $1.1 billion.
Cooper Street to SH 161
TxDOT has identified potential planned improvements along the Interstate 30 corridor from Oakland Boulevard to SH 161 as the region is able to identify future funding. Construction was completed in 2010 on the I-30 Mobility Improvement Project to reconstruct I-30 in Arlington. Currently under construction are the I-30/SH 360 Interchange improvements.
Currently under development is a re-evaluation of the proposed improvements to I-30 from Cooper Street to SH 161. The ultimate project would improve capacity for I-30 by constructing additional mainlanes and auxiliary lanes, adding frontage roads, bicycle and pedestrian accommodations and retaining the concurrent TEXpress Lanes from Cooper Street to Duncan Perry Road. Minimal impacts are anticipated to the I-30/SH 360 interchange due to this re-evaluation.
