Yes, incentives are included in the contract for early completion.
The project will transform the original 1950s Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike cloverleaf design into a modern, fully-directional interchange with connection ramps for all movements between I-30 and SH 360.
The I-30 and SH 360 mainlanes will also be rebuilt with additional auxiliary lanes added on I-30 and one lane in each direction added to SH 360 within the project limits. In addition, Six Flags Drive bridge over I-30 will be rebuilt from two lanes to five lanes (three southbound and two northbound lanes), extending Six Flags Drive north to Avenue H.
The limits of major construction on the project are on I-30 between Ballpark Way and Great Southwest Parkway, and on SH 360 between Brown Boulevard/Avenue K and Road to Six Flags Street.
Construction is scheduled to begin in Spring 2016, and is scheduled for completion in 2020.
Williams Brothers Construction Company Inc. is TxDOT’s contractor for the interchange.
Because of the limited area to build the new bridge structures at the intersection of I-30 and SH 360, the HOV/managed lane must be closed. Access will be maintained to and from the AT&T Way/Baird Farm Road HOV/managed lane access ramp throughout this project.
Lane closure locations, timing, and duration are very specific to the work to be performed. There will be coordination with major events in the Arlington Entertainment District to prevent impacting traffic to and from those events.
