I-30 Now 10 Lanes With C/D Roads
« on: November 30, 2017, 02:16:50 PM »

In this article more concerns appear, regarding ARDOT and its plans for I-30. They have chosen to construct 10 lanes for this project, instead of 8.

One bridge in that area is going to feel the weight, soon. I have not seen plans including the I-30, I-630 interchange. Whether it will also be upgraded to accommodate the increased lanes and subsequent volume.

I think the existing I-30 bridge over the Arkansas River is slated to be replaced. AHTD wrote a post roughly a year ago showing the animations and everything.

Yes, it is, but there are concerns over the interchange design servicing downtown Little Rock and other comunities.

Last I saw, they are still arguing discussing it.

Apparently, they still are, judging by that article... :banghead: But, at least they have come to a decision on the number of lanes instead of hopping between 8 and 10.

Sounds like years of headaches, barricades, orange cones/barrels, and traffic from hell coming soon.

Indeed. People will be using the I-440 bypass like crazy when they [finally] start the project.
