    Texas Department of Transportation is considering making a stretch of I-30 in Grand Prairie more pedestrian friendly.

    The Texas Department of Transportation is considering making a stretch of Interstate 30 in Grand Prairie more pedestrian friendly.

    The area of study stretches from Belt Line Road to state Highway 161.

    Plans include to improve frontage roads that run along both sides of I-30 and to add a pedestrian bridge to stretch over the highway.

    TxDOT said they would put in wider travel lanes and an outside lane on the frontage road to be shared by people riding bikes and walking.

    The exit ramps would be reconstructed too, according to TxDOT.

    Construction would begin in the fall of 2015 and take three years to complete.

    TxDOT estimates a total cost of $38 million for this project.

    A public forum is scheduled for Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Ruthe Jackson Center in Grand Prairie at 3113 S. Carrier Parkway.
