Work continues on I-30 with the project of widening from four lanes to six. The TxDOT Atlanta District released an update just in time for people that might be traveling this week for Thanksgiving.

Please be aware of this construction work in progress in these areas as of Novemeber 23, 2020:

Eastbound: Traffic lanes have shifted from Phase 1A to Phase 1B configuration.

Westbound: Work continues to shift traffic lanes from Phase 1A to Phase 1B configuration.

Next, the contractor will begin placing concrete traffic barriers along the inside shoulder so that work can be done to build the median section of pavement.

Expected traffic impacts:

  • Existing patterns for merging onto and off of the mainlanes have changed. Watch for signs to warn of changed patterns. When entering the mainlanes, be prepared to yield to mainlane traffic. When on the mainlanes, be prepared for traffic from the ramps to abruptly merge.
  • Lane (right or left) closures expected nightly, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
    Eastbound, various locations
    Westbound, various locations
  • Entrance/exit ramp closures expected nightly, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
    Eastbound, various locations
    Westbound, various locations
  • Daytime shoulder closures

Planned work:

  • Adjusting existing signs and placing temporary signs. (Eastbound & Westbound)
  • Removing existing pavement markings and placing temporary markings to prepare for traffic shift to shoulder and outside lane.
  • Mill & inlay operations to repair pavement at various locations.
  • Installation of concrete traffic barrier along the inside shoulders (beginning on the west end of the project in the area of FM 989).

All closures are subject to change based on weather and other circumstances. To view more project information, visit the I-30 Widening Project website.
