I. Background
HNTB Institute
The mission of the Institute
is to bring HNTB’s national
experts together with clients
and stakeholders in a
targeted and collaborative
session to explore strategic
partnerships and investigate
innovative solutions for
implementation on
complicated projects.

AREA MAP
Why I-30?
• Catalyst for new urban and multi-modal
design solutions
• Physically reconnect Fair Park and the
Deep Ellum communities
• Catalyst for community reinvigoration
• Area can serve as a sustainable center
for medical, cultural, scientific,
residential, historical and commercial
development

• Enhance Economic Development
• Minimize Infrastructure Cost
• Road Revenue
Brainstorming Ideas
II. Mobility Options
Alternative 1 TxDOT Plan
Alternative 1 Section
Alternative 1
10 general purpose lanes with 4 barrier separated
managed lanes, includes wishbone. Profile in canyon
Description section between old railyard to Carroll Street. X-pattern
ramps with continuous frontage roads.

R.O.W. Width 432 ft typical

How are we better Base condition


connecting neighborhoods?
2nd Ave
Access between I-30 and Haskell-Peak,
neighborhood? Munger-Barry-Grand- Windslow
Alternative 2

PURPOSE
• Maintains number of lanes
• Increase local connections (Lindsley
& Carroll)
• Maintains same number of access
points
• Reduce footprint (less right-of-way)
Alternative 2 Section

249 -371’ varies


Alternative 2
10 general purpose lanes with 4 buffer separated managed
lanes, without wishbone. Profile in canyon section
Description between old railyard to East Grand. Slip ramps with
continuous frontage roads between 2nd Avenue and
Munger.

R.O.W. Width 249 ft to 371 ft variable (minimum 60’ less than Alt. 1)

• Lid
• Narrow freeway
How are we better • Reconnect two additional streets:
connecting neighborhoods? – Lindsley
– Carroll

Access between I-30 and Same number of access points, configured differently
neighborhood?
Alternative 3

PURPOSE
• Maintains number of lanes
• Increase local connections
(Lindsley, Carroll, Fitzhugh)
• Revised access points for better
neighborhood connections
• Eliminated frontage roads for
narrower footprint
Alternative 3 Section

255’ typical
Alternative 3
10 general purpose lanes with 4 buffer separated managed
Description lanes, without wishbone. Profile in canyon section
between old railyard to East Grand with no frontage roads

R.O.W. Width 255 ft typical (minimum 177’ less than Alt. 1)

• Lid
• Narrow freeway
How are we better • Reconnect three additional streets:
connecting neighborhoods? – Lindsley
– Carroll
– Fitzhugh

Access between I-30 and Less number of access points, combination of different
neighborhood? ramps were used
Cost Implications
• Construction costs are within 4% for all
three alternatives
• Alternative 1: $205M
• Alternative 2: $216M
• Alternative 3: $207M
• Anticipated lower R.O.W. costs with
Alternatives 2 & 3
