AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Transportation will host an in-person meeting with a virtual option to gather input on proposed improvements on I-35 from US 290 East to SH 71/Ben White Boulevard.
The proposed improvements include removing the existing I-35 upper decks, lowering the roadway and adding two high occupancy vehicle managed lanes in each direction along I-35, with additional flyovers at I-35 and US 290 East. The project will also reconstruct east-west cross-street bridges, add pedestrian and bicycle paths and make additional safety and mobility improvements within the project limits.
Attendees will have an opportunity to review and comment on results of the alternatives evaluation, findings from an independent study of the community alternatives and proposed build-alternative layouts.
