The I-30 Mobility Improvement Project seeks to reduce congestion and improve regional mobility by expanding capacity along I-30. Construction between Cooper Street and Ballpark Way was completed in fall 2010.
I-30 Mobility Quick Facts
The Collins Street Bridge is a part of $165 million in improvements now taking shape along I-30. The I-30 Mobility Project also includes the new bridge at Center Street (which opened in 2009), a new bridge at Baird Farm Road, replacement of the Collins Street Bridge and the reconstruction of I-30 main lanes from Cooper Street to Ball Park Way.
- This project is part of an overall $400 million in planned improvements to the I-30 business corridor, which stretches from Oakland Boulevard in Fort Worth to the Dallas County line. As funding is identified for the region, I-30 will eventually be widened to a total of eight to 10 lanes throughout the length of the corridor.
This mobility project is enhanced by historic murals, architectural lighting and covered pedestrian sidewalks. The concept includes eight murals to be positioned in the retaining walls near the bridges at Center Street and Collins Street.
- These mobility improvements are estimated to spur economic development and redevelopment. This area of I-30 is a gateway to destinations such as Six Flags Over Texas, Ballpark in Arlington, Cowboys Stadium, Arlington Convention Center, River Legacy Parks and the Downtown/University District, which includes the Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts, City Hall and the University of Texas at Arlington.
The Collins Street Bridge is scheduled for completion in Spring 2010. When completed, it will have three lanes in each direction, additional left-turn lanes, two Texas U-turns and covered pedestrian walkways.
- The entire I-30 Mobility Project is slated for completion in the Fall 2010.
