Multiple overpass projects planned along Interstate 30
5 Jun 2020
Motorists driving to and through Hunt County in the next few years will have to navigate through several major construction projects along the county’s highways, including the rebuilding of four overpasses between Greenville and the Rockwall County line.
Dan Perry, the Texas Department of Transportation Director of Transportation Planning and Development for the Paris District, was the presenter during a Tuesday afternoon virtual meeting of the 2021-24 regionally significant projects funded by federal, state or local funds in the district.
“These are the projects you can expect will go to contract in the near future,” Perry said during the unveiling of TxDOT’s Rural Transportation Improvement Program.
The projects include more than $100 million in efforts at replacing the overpasses along Interstate 30 at FM 1570, FM 36, FM 1565 and County Road 2509, all of which have been on the drawing boards for several years to accommodate the growing population in the region.
