I-30 Construction Closes Major Entrance & Exit Ramps
Progress can bring growing pains and as the I-30 widening project continues it inches its way closer and closer to Texarkana and higher traffic areas. With that being said we have an update on where construction is taking place on I-30 and the exits and entrance ramps that it will affect.
According to a press release from TxDOT some closures to place last night with others today and tonight.
As of Last Night, Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2021
The closing of lanes on westbound I-30 at the I-30 W/ I-369/US 59 S interchange. The I-30 westbound entrance ramp (in the area of Sam’s Club) from the north frontage road will be closed. They will be working to replace the crash cushion attenuator, install in-lane transverse rumble strips in the main lanes, and install additional pavement markings to identify the lanes for I-30 West and US 59 South. These features will create a visual and tactile change in the pavement to alert drivers of the approaching interchange.
