PARIS – One in three vehicles traveling along Interstate Highway 30 in East and Northeast Texas is a semi-trailer truck, or “big rig.”
That is why the I-30 East Texas Corridor Study group has created a hotline for truck drivers to text or call in; to voice their ideas and concerns as part of the planning process for the future of this highway.
Here are a few things the study group wants to know:
- Are more truck stops needed?
- Do safety measures need improvement?
- Does I-30 need dedicated restricted lanes for trucks and passenger vehicles?
- What other improvements along I-30 need to be made?
Anyone wanting to voice their suggestions or concerns can text or call (434) 878-2530 (or 434-TRUCK30). Please respond by Aug. 31, 2016, to have any concerns and ideas included in the study results.
