Late Update – August 2010

October 27, 2010

It’s been many months and … officially been two months since I’ve been over to the site. Much progress has been made since these images were captured back in August … but nothing dramatic in the visual sense. All of the girders are in place on all ramps between the lake and Interstate 30, the westbound lanes of the I-30 overpass are complete and open to both directions of traffic and the one-mile bridge has officially reached the Rowlett shoreline.

Over the past eight months a surprising number of people interested in the construction have found my blog by searching the Internet. Many of them are local citizens … and like myself … will be … or have already been directly impacted. Others simply drive by every day, or on occasion, and wonder what the heck is going on. I’ve had numerous inquiries asking if I know anything about the future East Branch Project for State Highway 190 which will continue through Garland … into Sunnyvale until it meets Interstate 20 near Lawson Road. The last meeting I attended displayed an arial photograph combined with illustrations of the roadway median passing directly through the intersection of Peninsula Way and Locust Grove and continuing along side Wind Surf Bay Park. Beyond that I know nothing more than what can be found here.

Previous updates are in the process of being re-located to this blog … until then check them out here.

Be sure to visit the photo galleries for an extensive look at the construction area where you also can flag multiple images for before & after comparison.

The images on this blog and within it’s photo galleries are for documentation purposes only and capturing great images is not my main objective. But … on occasion I do manage to capture some nice images in a seemly not-so-nice place.

Highlights:

  • The southbound 190 to westbound I-30 ramp has had most of the bridge spans in place. The northern section is already receiving roadway sub-structure.
  • What looks like the tallest support structure is now complete.
  • Construction started on the one-mile direct-connect bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard. Numerous partial and complete support columns are already rising above the water.
  • Many of the support columns for the eastbound I-30 to northbound 190 ramp are near complete
  • The first support structures for the westbound I-30 to northbound 190 ramp are complete
  • The right-lane of the new westbound I-30 access road is nearly complete
  • The future site of a bridge allowing drivers to pass beneath I-30 is now apparent along the new access road
  • Major site leveling can be seen on the Rowlett shoreline.
