Project Components

New and additional freeway lanes, two new bridges (Center Street and Baird Farm), one replaced bridge (Collins Street), one frontage-road bridge and two braided-ramp bridges; also included Texas U-turns, continuous frontage roads and reversible managed lanes.

In 2002, Parkhill | Schrickel Rollins and Graham Associates joined forces and were selected to be the team to provide schematics and PS&Es to drastically upgrade Interstate 30 through Arlington, Texas. The Three+ Bridges project extended 3 miles from Cooper Street to Ballpark Way. The project not only improved the traffic flow along the IH-30 corridor and created easier access to Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Rangers Ballpark, and the other destinations in the Arlington Entertainment District, but it also made it a destination and created a sense of place with its enhanced bridges, enhanced retaining walls with 8 murals depicting the history of Arlington, decorative intersection paving and creative landscaping.


The improvements included new and additional freeway lanes, two new bridges (Center Street and Baird Farm), one replaced bridge (Collins Street), one frontage-road bridge, and two braided-ramp bridges. It also included Texas U-turns, continuous frontage roads, and reversible managed lanes.


In all, the project design moved over 1.6 million cubic yards of dirt and constructed over 500,000 square yards of concrete paving, 266,000 square feet of new bridges, over 400,000 square feet of retaining wall of all types, 12 new signal installations, and over 11.5 miles of storm drain pipe and boxes.


One of the biggest design challenges was to prepare a traffic control plan that would move over 100,000 vehicles per day into and through the corridor safely and efficiently. A balance between access and construction efficiency was the key.


Another challenge involved the development of a public involvement plan in order to get property owners and operators on board with a project that changed frontage road access from two-way to one-way, revised sight lines, and disrupted traffic for over 4 years during construction. The team worked diligently with elected officials, the Chamber of Commerce, TxDOT, City of Arlington staff, property owners and operators to sell the benefits of the project.


The project was a huge success! It was designed and constructed on time while managing traffic for both a Super Bowl and an NBA All-Star Game. It also came in more than 7% under budget.
