TxDOT Begins I-30 Expansion in Hunt County

PARIS, TX — Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) officials announce that a project to improve and upgrade a portion of Interstate Highway 30 in Hunt County has begun.

The contractor, Williams Brothers Construction Company, was granted 945 working days, weather permitting, to complete this project valued at more than $210 million. The target completion date for this project is August 2027, officials said.

This project will reach from 0.75 miles west of CR 2509 eastward to 1.6 miles east of FM 1565 and will be constructed in four phases. This work includes improving intersections at CR 2511, FM 1565, and FM 36; converting frontage roads to one-way operation; and widening existing main lanes.

This work will require night and daytime closures. Travelers will be alerted to long-term closures with portable message boards along the roadway, officials said.

The Texas Department of Transportation is responsible for maintaining 80,000 miles of road and for supporting aviation, rail, and public transportation across the state. TxDOT and its 12,000 employees work with others to provide safe and reliable transportation solutions for Texas by maintaining a safe system, addressing congestion, and connecting Texas communities.
