Project Scope

Phase 1 of the 30 Crossing Project includes areas of construction in Little Rock and North Little Rock. Remaining portions of the 30 Crossing project will be constructed in future phases.

Arkansas River Bridge

  • The Arkansas River Bridge will be reconstructed to three through lanes with two collector-distributor lanes and an auxiliary lane in both directions.

  • The bridge will include an improved opening for the Arkansas River navigational channel.

North Little Rock

  • In North Little Rock, additional lanes continue eastbound through the Broadway Street interchange to Bishop Lindsey Avenue. The Broadway Street interchange will also be reconstructed.

  • Beginning at Bishop Lindsey Avenue, the project includes new pavement and re-striping eastbound I-30 to four lanes to the interchange with I-40 (North Terminal). This creates a fourth lane without widening the freeway or bridge structures to add capacity.

  • The Curtis Sykes Drive entrance ramp to eastbound I-30 will be north and east to tie into I-40 east.

  • Portions of the North Terminal will be reconstructed to remove an eastbound I-40 weaving issue between the North Terminal and the I-40/Highway 67 interchange. A bridge will be constructed to carry eastbound I-30 entrance ramp traffic over I-40 eastbound ramp lanes to enter traffic in the far-left eastbound lanes.

Little Rock

  • In Little Rock, I-30 improvements continue above a reconstructed I-30/Hwy. 10 (Cantrell Road) interchange (split diamond) and continues with four main lanesin both directions between 3rd Street and 9th Street.

  • A new wider bridge over I-30 will be constructed at 6th Street.

  • The Hwy. 10 interchange will be reconstructed as a split-diamond interchange. This will remove the clover leaf ramps and provide direct ramp access with the frontage roads.

    • Highway 10 will be reconstructed along existing 2nd Street and extended from Cumberland Drive, below I-30, to Maholon Martin Street.
    • The clover leaf ramps will be removed and the right-of-way between President Clinton Avenue and 3rd Street will be regraded to accommodate future use as a public space.
    • Mahlon Martin Street will be extended and improved from East 4th Street to President Clinton Avenue.
  • There are several ramp improvements at the I-630 interchange.

    • Two eastbound I-630 ramp lanes will enter I-30 eastbound rather than being reduced to one lane.
    • A new ramp lane will be constructed from the eastbound I-630 ramp to the eastbound I-30 frontage road.
    • A second lane will be added from the westbound frontage road entrance ramp to I-30 westbound at I-630.
    • East and West I-30 main lanes through the I-630 interchange narrowed from three to two lanes in both directions.
