PARIS – The Texas Department of Transportation will host an online virtual public meeting from 5 p.m. Feb. 25 through 11:59 p.m. March 12 to gather public input on proposed improvements to I-30 in the western portion of Hunt County.
A pre-recorded audio and video presentation will be available. After viewing the online presentation, residents can provide comments and input on this proposed roadway through 11:59 p.m. March 12.
The proposed improvements are designed to reconstruct and widen I-30 from four lanes to six, reconfigure access ramps, and incorporate one-way frontage roads from FM 2642 to State Highway 34. The proposed conversion of frontage roads to one-way, and adding capacity to the freeway with the 12.34-mile project area are needed to improve safety and reduce congestion between FM 2642 and SH 34.
Proposed improvements to CR 2511 and 2646, FM 1565, FM 36, FM 1903 and FM 1570 at their intersections with I-30 would also enhance connectivity within the project area. Additional right of way would be required, but no residential or non-residential structures are anticipated to be displaced at this time.
