Hunt County Historical Commission chairman Carol Taylor says the 58th anniversary of Interstate 30 opening is September 5.  The first part of I-30, the Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike, opened September 5, 1957.  Construction of I-30 to the east continued into the early 1960s.  Carol says I-30 has vastly changed the lives of people in Hunt County and Northeast Texas.
