I–30 Poll: Give your opinion on the future of Interstate 30

An online poll is asking for the public’s opinion on Interstate 30.
The eight question poll asks for feedback on the speed limit and bridge height among other things.
According to TxDOT, “this corridor study will identify transportation needs in northeast Texas along I-30 from Farm-to-Market Road (FM) 2642 near the Rockwall/Hunt county line to the Texas/Arkansas state line in Texarkana.”
“As Interstate 30 ages, and population and trade increase in Texas, we must assess the safety and capacity needs and plan for the future.”
The study will assess current corridor conditions and future transportation needs. Factors to be considered include:
  • Existing and future traffic volumes (including trucks)
  • Crash statistics,  Economic development opportunities,
  • Physical characteristics (including horizontal and vertical clearances at overpasses, bridge/structural ratings, pavement condition, median treatments, truck parking, lane and shoulder widths, as well as frontage roads),
  • Community needs
  • Environmental features.


Through this assessment, the study will identify opportunities for addressing the needs within the corridor. The end result of the study will be to compile a program of projects describing the improvements needed along I-30 in the near, mid and long term time periods.
