POSTPONED - Virtual Public Scoping Meeting - I-35 Capital Express Central Project

Special Notice: TxDOT is postponing this virtual public scoping meeting. We will provide further notice when the meeting has been rescheduled.


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this meeting is a virtual public scoping meeting and will be hosted on the website.


Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021 through Thursday, March 25, 2021

All comments must be received on or before Thursday, March 25, 2021. This will be a virtual public scoping meeting via a pre-recorded video presentation.


The purpose of the second virtual public scoping meeting is to provide stakeholders an opportunity to view the project presentation and provide comments on:

  • How alternatives will be analyzed
  • Coordination plan and schedule
  • Project purpose and need
  • Range of alternatives

All interested persons are invited to attend this virtual public scoping meeting to review the project materials and provide feedback. All comments must be received on or before Thursday, March 25, 2021, to be a part of the official virtual public scoping meeting record. 


The proposed improvements include adding two non-tolled managed lanes in each direction along I-35 from US 290 East to SH 71/Ben White Boulevard, with additional flyovers at I-35 and US 290 East. The proposed project also includes various operational and safety enhancements that optimize the roadway footprint and would reconstruct ramps, bridges and intersections; improve frontage roads; improve bicycle and pedestrian paths and accommodate transit routes. 

Special Accommodations:

The virtual public scoping meeting will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you. If you have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services, or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the virtual public scoping meeting, please contact Nic Barbera at (512) 766-3472 no later than 4 p.m. CT, Friday, Feb. 19, 2021. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
