TxDOT Horseshoe Project affecting traffic flow on eastbound I-30
Drivers on I-30 are now seeing a major traffic shift, part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Horseshoe Project.
Drivers must now make an earlier decision and need to stay in the two right lanes to exit northbound I-35E, Commerce Street, Riverfront Boulevard and southbound I-35E. Drivers wanting to continue on I-30 east through downtown Dallas must be in the left two lanes. More than 460,000 vehicles travel interstate highways 30 and 35E every weekday.
Dubbed the “Horseshoe Project” due to its U shape, construction improvements include the expansion, repaving and addition of several new bridges and roadways along Interstates 30 and 35E; and the construction of a new signature bridge, the Margaret McDermott Bridge over I-30.
The project is scheduled to be complete by summer 2017. Once completed, drivers should experience improved safety, increased capacity and improved mobility through the heart of Dallas.
