I-30 to close temporarily late April 22

Posted April 16, 2018

Archived Content Information and links provided may no longer be accurate.

As part of the Hemphill-Lamar Connector project, I-30 will be closed at multiple times from 9 p.m. until midnight April 22 so Oncor can relocate existing overhead electric lines crossing the interstate.

There will be four closures of approximately 15 minutes each to remove the power lines. Closures are anticipated to occur once every hour. During the relocation, I-30 entrance ramps will be temporarily closed at Eighth Avenue/Summit Avenue, Henderson Street/SH-199, southbound I-35W to westbound I-30, and northbound I-35W to westbound I-30.

Motorists should observe warning signs and follow instructions from police officers directing traffic. Alternate routes, including I-820 to the north and I-20 to the south, should be considered.

Excavation is underway just south of the Lamar Street and Lancaster Avenue intersection. The two-phase construction process is slated to be finished in early 2020.

Total cost of the project is $53 million with the city contributing $26.6 million. The remaining funding will come from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, Texas Department of Transportation and Tarrant County.
