The public is invited to review differing plans for an expansion of Interstate 30 in downtown Little Rock and North Little Rock Tuesday night.

Arkansas Department of Highway and Transportation spokesman Danny Straessle says officials will present miniature models and share the latest possible plans, including an either eight or 10 lane increase from the existing six lane road.

"We will actually have folks who will make a presentation, basically show what's new, how we've been able to collaborate with the various stakeholders, just basically roll everything out for folks who are there," Straessle said.

Tuesday's 5 p.m. meeting in North Little Rock may be the second to last opportunity for public input before the Federal Highway Administration makes a final determination about the plan.

"The environmental review period will produce an alternative that is the one we'll be moving forward with," he said. Online comment can also be submitted at www.30crossing.com.
