Rain Delays affect more than baseball. Although the change was scheduled to take affect Thursday, the overpass at the intersection of Interstate Highway 30 and State Highways 19 and 11 will be delayed until Friday at 8 a.m. The pavement must be dry for the painting of traffic stripes that will note the change.
The current two-lane overpass, with a center left-turn lane and traffic signals at each end, will be striped to allow four lanes of traffic, two in each direction. The existing traffic signals will be programmed to function as flashing yellow lights for about 90 days following the change and will be removed in the future.
Dedicated right-turn lanes will provide access to SH 19 or SH 11 and frontage roads. Vehicles on the I-30 east-bound or west-bound service roads will be guided to SH 19 or SH 11 by traffic signs. The new traffic flow configuration is designed to reduce congestion at this highway interchange, TxDOT officials said.
