Texas Drivers Face Road Closures

April 23, 2024
Once completed, the I-30/SH 360 Project promises improved safety, connectivity and mobility

As the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) continues work on the $233 million Interstate 30/State Highway 360 Interchange Project in Arlington, some roads remain closed and more closures are popping up across the region.

Recognizing the growing transportation needs of the Arlington metroplex, the Regional Transportation Council and TxDOT selected the I-30/SH 360 Interchange Project for construction in 2015. The project became possible after the Texas Transportation Commission approved Proposition 1 funding for the project. The interchange is the largest Proposition 1 funded project in the state.

The Interstate 30/State Highway 360 interchange project will replace the existing cloverleaf turnpike configuration with a direct connect interchange. The improvements to the area will increase safety, connectivity and mobility for motorists, according to TxDOT.

From May 3-6, I-30 eastbound mainlanes will be reduced to one lane between AT&T Way/Baird Farm Rd to SH 360 for pavement maintenance. 

On May 31-Jun 3, I-30 eastbound mainlanes will be reduced to one lane between AT&T Way/Baird Farm Rd to SH 360 for pavement maintenance.

Work to another ongoing project in San Antonio will also cause closures.

As part of the $1.4 billion revamp of Loop 1604 from Bandera Road all the way to I-35 on the far Northeast Side of San Antonio, TxDOT is creating a series of stacked direct connectors between Loop 1604 and I-10. To continue work on the heavily traversed intersection, which is roughly 50% done, TxDOT is shutting down several lanes of the highway for the second weekend in a row.

TxDOT announced all main lanes of Loop 1604 will be closed at the intersection with I-10, and all four leaf-clover connector ramps will be shut down.

From 9 p.m. Friday, April 19, until 5 a.m. Monday, eastbound and westbound lanes of Loop 1604 will be shut down from Vance Jackson Road to La Cantera Parkway. Further, all sections of the four-leaf-clover will be shut down, meaning anyone hoping to change from Loop 1604 to I-10 or vice versa will have to exit early and take access roads.

Work for the project started four years ago and is slated for completion in 2027.
