I-30 in Grand Pairie to Close for Bridge work at NW 19th Street

TxDOT - June 12, 2007

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will close eastbound and westbound Interstate 30 (I-30) at NW 19th Street in Grand Prairie to allow for the setting of precast concrete panels on the bridge beams.

I-30 at NW 19th Street will close from 8 p.m. Saturday, June 16, to 6 a.m. Sunday, June 17. Precast concrete panels will be set on the southbound frontage road of State Highway 161 (SH 161) underpass during this time. Traffic will be reduced to one lane and directed onto the overpass ramps at NW 19th Street to allow motorists to bypass the construction.

“This work is important because it provides for the placement of concrete pavement on the bridge and will ultimately lead to opening the bridge to traffic,” said Tony Payberah, assistant area engineer for the Southwest Dallas Area Office.
Message boards announcing the roadway closure have been placed in both directions along I-30 to notify the public of the scheduled closures. Law enforcement will also be present to help with traffic control.

This construction work is part of phase one of a $28 million project to construct a five-level interchange at I-30 and SH 161, which has a tentative completion date of March 2008. The contractor for this project is Texas Sterling Construction, L.P, of Grand Prairie.

The work will take place weather permitting.
