The State of Texas will spend more than $80 million to widen Interstate 30 to three lanes eastbound and westbound in TEXarkana.

Major changes are coming to Interstate 30 through TEXarkana, according to plans approved in May by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“We will be completely reconstructing almost six miles of the highway and widening it from four lanes to six lanes from 0.6 mile west of Farm to Market Road 989 (Kings Highway) in Nash to the Arkansas State Line,” said Paul Wong, area engineer for TxDOT in Texarkana.

“This section of I-30 was first constructed about 60 years ago, so instead of just adding new traffic lanes, we felt it would be best to reconstruct the whole highway with all new materials.”

Traffic will be moved to one side while the other is being constructed, then moved to the new sections as the last sections are constructed.
