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


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


Due to recent weather events, TxDOT is rescheduling Virtual Public Scoping Meeting #2 to Thursday, March 11 through Friday, April 9, 2021. 

All comments must be received on or before Friday, April 9, 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 Friday, April 9, 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, March 5, 2021.
