This six-lane alternate with collector/distributor lanes, eliminates the Arkansas 10 interchange and creates a new interchange between East Fourth and East Ninth streets.

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department on Tuesday released animated, 3D videos to depict what could be in the future for the Interstate 30 corridor.

Videos were made available ahead of the sixth public input meeting Tuesday as part of ongoing reconfiguration plans for I-30 through downtown Little Rock and North Little Rock.

The project, which is estimated to cost $631.7 million, includes four alternatives: two versions of a "6-lane with collector/distributor lanes" option and two featuring an eight-lane alternative, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette previously reported.

The "6-lane with collector/distributor lanes" options alter interchanges — one replacing a current interchange with Arkansas 10/Cantrell Road and the other creating a new split-diamond interchange between East Fourth and East Ninth streets.

If all goes according to plan, the I-30 project would begin in 2018, with completion in 2022.

Read Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for full details.
