I-30 in Arlington to close this weekend for bridge removal

Have plans to head east on I-30 this weekend?

The Texas Department of Transportation will close the eastbound and westbound I-30 mainlanes from FM 157/Collins Street to SH 161/President George Bush Turnpike from 7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 7 to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 10, to remove the southbound SH 360 bridge over I-30, weather and venue schedules permitting.

Eastbound I-30 motorists will be detoured to southbound FM 157/Collins Street, then to eastbound SH 180/Division Street, and then to the northbound SH 161 frontage road to the eastbound I-30 direct connector ramp (toll free during the detour). Motorists can then access eastbound I-30. Westbound I-30 motorists will take the opposite detour.

SH 360 access to westbound I-30 will be directed through the SH 180/Division Street interchange. Eastbound I-30 access from Six Flags Drive will remain open.

The I-30/State Highway 360 interchange project is transforming the original 1950s Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike cloverleaf design into a modern, fully directional interchange with connection ramps between I-30 and SH 360. These improvements will increase safety, connectivity and mobility for motorists.

Motorists are urged to remain alert for changing traffic patterns as construction progresses.
