Public Meeting Notice

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department will hold a public meeting in North Little Rock to discuss and present plans to widen Interstate 30 in Little Rock and North Little Rock.

The public meeting will provide an update since the Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study was completed and approved in July. During this time, the study team has further evaluated roadway, bridge and interchange concepts to widen I-30 to 10 lanes with a downtown collector/distributor system, as well as evaluated an additional alternative to widen I-30 to 8 lanes. Additional work has included initiating environmental evaluations required under the National Environmental Policy Act and identifying and analyzing ways to minimize impacts.

This will be an "open house" meeting with no formal presentations. The public is invited to visit any time during the scheduled hours to view maps and exhibits, ask questions, and offer comments about the proposed project.
