|TxDOT is conducting a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study to identify safety and mobility improvements along I-35 from SH 45 Southeast to CR 382/Cibolo Valley Drive in Travis, Hays, Comal, and Guadalupe counties, Texas. The purpose of the I-35 Austin to San Antonio Link Study is to explore transportation alternatives to address the growing safety, mobility and connectivity needs along the corridor due to the projected population and employment growth in the region. This series of open house meetings is to provide an opportunity for the community to review and comment on the draft purpose and need, the range of alternatives developed to address the I-35 corridor needs and the evaluation process that will be used to identify the feasible and recommended alternatives, which will be evaluated further in later stages.
The study corridor covers 46 miles of I-35 from SH 45 Southeast in Travis County through Buda, Kyle, San Marcos and New Braunfels to CR 382/Cibolo Valley Drive in Guadalupe County.
