Interstate Highway 30 (IH 30) Canyon Improvements

Limits: From IH 35E to IH 45/IH 345

CSJ: 0009-11-254

Dallas County, Texas

Purpose:

This notice advises the public that TxDOT has issued a Notice of Availability Environmental Clearance (Approved Schematic Available for Public Review).

Project Description:

The Texas Department of Transportation (“TxDOT”) and the City of Dallas are proposing to reconstruct and widen IH 30 from IH 35E to IH 45/IH 345, known as the IH 30 Canyon, in the City of Dallas, Dallas County, Texas. The proposed improvements include reconstructing the IH 30 Canyon as an urban freeway with six mainlanes in each direction with discontinuous frontage roads. The project would also include ramping improvements throughout its approximate 1.6 miles between the two interchanges. The existing and proposed right-of-way (ROW) widths vary from approximately 400 feet to over 1,000 feet at the interchange with IH 35E. Additionally, TxDOT proposes to restripe the eastbound lanes from IH 345 to just west of Exposition Avenue, a distance of approximately 0.8 mile, to provide a transition lane. A portable concrete barrier would be removed from the IH 45/IH 345 interchange to just east of exit 48A/Haskell Avenue, a distance of approximately 1.2 miles. The proposed project would require approximately 2.5 acres of additional ROW and potentially displace two non-residential structures. Relocation assistance is available for displaced persons and businesses.

Project Timeline

The proposed project was environmentally cleared December 7, 2020 for the next stage of project development. The project has an anticipated Letting Date in February 2024. Construction timeframe is not yet determined.
