Survey results will be used to evaluate and improve current traveler information efforts.

The Texas Department of Transportation wants to hear from travelers about what information is useful, what isn’t, and what more could be provided to the greater Waco region.

Motorists who regularly travel I-35 through Central Texas know, construction work has been under way to improve this busy corridor. Providing travelers with information about potential construction-related delays — both before and during their trip along the entire 96-mile construction zone — has been an integral part of the construction effort. Now, as construction takes aim on Waco, more targeted information is planned. To participate in a brief, anonymous survey, visit My35survey.org. The survey will be open from April 1 through May 31, 2019.

The I-35 expansion in Waco from 12th Street to North Loop 340 is designed to dramatically improve mobility and safety. Improvements include expansion from two to three lanes in each direction, expanded roadside traveler information, a modern roadway design that enhances safety and conversion frontage roads from two-way frontage to one-way, improving safety and access.

For more information about I-35 expansion projects, the My35 planning effort or to see a summary of the survey results once the survey is completed, visit My35.org.
