The Texas Department of Public Transportation has released new aerial images showing the latest progress on the construction of the $233 million Interstate 30/State Highway 360 Interchange Project in Arlington.

City, county and state leaders celebrated the groundbreaking of the major construction project in March 2016.  The interchange, designed to reduce traffic congestion on both high-volume highways and improve safety for the traveling public, is the largest Proposition 1 funded project in the state.

The modern interchange will connect both directions of I-30 with both directions of SH 360, allowing motorists to move seamlessly between the highways instead of exiting onto local streets with traffic lights and stop signs.

The massive project is focused on I-30 between Ballpark Way and Great Southwest Parkway and on SH 360 between Brown Boulevard/Ave K and Road to Six Flags Drive.

The project, being built by Williams Brothers Construction Co., Inc. of Houston, is set to be complete by 2020. Drivers can stay updated on planned lane closures through a variety of platforms, including email alerts, Facebook and Twitter and the Keep30360Moving webpage.

Except during major events in Arlington’s Entertainment District, lane closures will be allowed Monday through Saturday during off-peak hours (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.) and all-day Sunday.

Arlington has also partnered with Waze to give drivers the best experience possible to get around the city . Drivers can download Waze for free at www.waze.com/get for iOS and Android and see real-time traffic, find optimal routes, avoid game-related road closures and more.
