Limits from North Main Street to East Camp Wisdom Road in Duncanville 

DUNCANVILLE –The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is proposing improvements to Interstate Highway (I-20) from North (N.) Main Street to East (E.) Camp Wisdom Road in Duncanville. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at the Hilton Garden Inn, 800 N. Main Street in Duncanville. Displays will be available for viewing at 5:30 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 6 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to present the planned improvements and to receive public comment on the project.

txdotThe project includes the construction of a new concrete-paved eastbound frontage road between Oriole Blvd. and E. Camp Wisdom, and westbound between N. Main and Oriole Blvd. The new eastbound frontage road would extend the existing frontage road beyond Oriole to E. Camp Wisdom. The intersection at E. Camp Wisdom and the eastbound frontage road would be signalized.

The eastbound entrance ramp from N. Main to I-20 would also be reconstructed at its current location. The new westbound frontage road would extend beyond Oriole to the west. The existing access from the westbound frontage road to Winding Trail would be reconstructed to align with the new frontage road. The westbound exit ramp to N. Main Street from I- 20 would be reconstructed at its current location. The existing access from the westbound exit ramp to Thrush would be removed. Each frontage road would consist of one 12-foot wide inside travel lane and one 14-foot wide outside shared-use lane (for bicycle accommodation) with curb and gutter. A six-foot sidewalk would be located along the outer lanes of both eastbound and westbound frontage roads. Approximately 0.37 acre of new right of way (corner clips) would be acquired. There are no residential or commercial displacements as a result of the project.

The cost is approximately $5.01 million and is expected to begin in 2019 with completion in 2021.
