I-35 Planning and Environmental Linkage
In 2011, the My35 Citizen Committees recommended improving the existing north-south routes along I-35 in the San Antonio area. The recommendations included:
- Improving the I-35 intersections at Loop 1604 and I-410
- Loop 1604 improvements
- Using new technologies to inform motorists of delays and alternate routes
TxDOT is using the citizen committees’ recommendations to study how to improve travel through San Antonio. Two studies, known as the I-35 Planning and Environmental Linkage (PEL) studies, are looking at how to make better use of I-410 and I-10 as an alternative to the heavily congested I-35 in central San Antonio and also looking at potential improvements and alternatives to I-35 through downtown.
Using information and community input from the I-35 PEL studies, TxDOT will advance specific projects and improvements as funding becomes available.
