INTERSTATE 30

Interstate 30 provides access between Fort Worth, Dallas, Texarkana, and Little Rock. The shortest Interstate x0 at a length of just 367 miles, Interstate 30 spends most of those miles in the Lone Star State.

From its beginning at Interstate 20 west of Fort Worth, Interstate 30 spends its first five miles in a rural area. Once it meets Interstate 820 for the first time, however, the surrounding area changes drastically, and Interstate 30 becomes the main highway from Fort Worth to Dallas. This stretch of highway was originally the Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike. The interchanges at TX 360 and Loop 12 have their unusual design because of the highway's original configuration. (Plus, it would be very very very expensive to redo the interchanges!) The highway maintains three lanes in each direction from the western Interstate 820 junction (Exit 5) to TX 205 (Exit 68).

After leaving Dallas behind, the highway continues northeast as it heads through Greenville, Sulphur Springs, Mount Pleasant, and Texarkana. After intersecting U.S. 59 and U.S. 71 at Exits 223A-B, Interstate 30 enters the state of Arkansas.
