Traffic Alert: Full Closure of Interstate 30 in Arlington Set Nov. 9-12

The Interstate 30/SH 360 Interchange Project is reaching a major milestone early next month. Traffic will be shifted onto the new SH 360 southbound frontage road bridge over I-30. Following that traffic switch, the contractor will remove the existing SH 360 frontage road bridge over the interstate.

To safely perform this work, Interstate 30 will be closed between FM 157/Collins Street and President George Bush Turnpike from 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9 through 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 12. Traffic will be detoured along FM 157/Collins Street, SH 180/Division Street/Main Street and President George Bush Turnpike.

Closures for the $233 million Interstate 30/SH 360 Interchange Project are subject to changes due to weather and schedule. For more information, please visit the Keep 30360 Moving website.

  1. The signs on I-30 need to be updated. They are saying that the closure starts on 11/8 except for 1. It makes this whole process a bit confusing.
