Greenville – Another change is coming for motorists along Interstate 30, starting Tuesday.
Traffic on the eastbound main lanes of Interstate 30 will be reduced down to one lane between 1.8 miles and four-tenths of a mile west of State Highway 34/Wesley Street during a phase of construction which is expected to remain in affect for approximately 11 months, according to an announcement from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and its contractor, Austin Bridge and Road.
Starting last Thursday, the westbound interstate main lane traffic, a half-mile west of State Highway 34/Wesley Street was detoured onto the north Frontage Road for approximately one mile, then back onto the interstate's main lanes.
TxDOT officials said both the westbound detour and the eastbound lane reduction are necessary to facilitate the construction of Interstate 30 over Monty Stratton Parkway and are advising motorists to exercise caution while traveling in the area.
