The Texas Dept. of Transportation has announced the work is expected to be completed in February 2023.

  • If you travel between Greenville and Commerce on Interstate 30, you might want to allow for some extra travel time beginning this week and continuing through the holiday season. The Texas Department of Transportation has announced that work is beginning today on the I-30 bridge over the Sabine River. That’s on the east side of Greenville, between Division Street and State Spur 302. Work will affect, at times, both eastbound and westbound traffic. Drivers can expect a temporary closure of one travel lane and a reduced speed limit of 65 mph. TxDOT says the project should be completed in February of 2023.
