The I-30W Corridor Expansion Study has been completed, according to Texas Department of Transportation Engineer Charles Cox. The area between Camp Bowie Blvd. and Chisholm Trail Parkway will not be included in this expansion project, so no Arlington Heights properties will be affected, but could possibly be studied as part of a future TXDOT project.

The current I-30W Corridor Expansion project now moves into the Design Schematic and Environmental Assessment phase and will be strictly limited to I-30 west of Camp Bowie Blvd. only. This summer, the Schematic and Draft Environmental Document will be presented in a public meeting and finalized in the fall.  Environmental approval is slated for late 2024.

Looking far ahead in the distant future and after the current I-30 expansion is completed, local non-profit group Community Design Fort Worth is proposing the potential concept of capping I-30 in front of Arlington Heights High School. This idea would restore the lawn that once existed in front of the school and reconnect the neighborhoods on both sides of the highway with a deck park.  Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas is a well-known deck park that was established in 2012.  At that time, the cost was about $110 million, more than half of which required funding from private sources.

Plan to attend an open public meeting this Wednesday to hear local architects and landscape architects discuss the concept of a potential deck park by Arlington Heights High School.
