Brace for Impact video - $166 million project didn't fix I-30 bottleneck in Arlington


A $166 million makeover of Interstate 30 in Arlington was dubbed the "Three Bridges project." The work created a modern, efficient way to move traffic into the city's entertainment district, including the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium and the Rangers' Globe Life  Ballpark. But, like all good things, the work came to an end on the west side of Arlington, near the Cooper Street overpass. There, about six lanes of traffic in each direction from the modernized version of I-30 squeeze back down into the old configuration, only three lanes in each direction, which continues all the way to downtown Fort Worth. Here' s a video I did on the I-30 mess, which includes some updated information on what the Texas Department of Transportation is doing about it. I30

Does it surprise anyone that the added lanes did nothing to relieve the congestion? Raise your hands if you see the same problem when the 820/183/121 construction is all finished...


Not to worry. Jarry's world will get this fixed. Anything for Jarry.
