“Stuck in Traffic on I-35?”
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Wants To Hear Your Thoughts on Making Improvements to I-35
TxDOT, in partnership with the City of Austin and the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, will host three open house-style public meetings for proposed capacity improvements to I-35 between State Highway (SH) 45 North and SH 45 Southeast in Travis County. The proposed improvements are being evaluated through a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study as part of the Mobility35 Program. The PEL Study will focus specifically on the proposed I-35 Future Transportation Corridor (FTC), which would allow two additional travel mainlanes (one in each direction) within the existing I-35 right-of-way.
The public meetings will be held on June 3, 4, and 5, 2014, from 5 PM to 7:30 PM at the following locations:
- Tuesday, June 3, 2014 – Kealing Middle School, 1607 Pennsylvania Avenue, Austin, TX 78702
- Wednesday, June 4, 2014 – Akins High School, 10701 South First Street, Austin, TX 78748
- Thursday, June 5, 2014 – Frank Fickett Scout Training and Service Center and Conference Center, 12500 North I-35, Austin, TX 78753
All interested citizens are invited to attend these meetings and to express their views on the purpose and need and preliminary lane options being considered. Those unable to attend the Open House can provide input online at a Virtual Open House that will run from June 3-15, 2014. More information about the study, and a link to the online open house, is available on the Mobility35 website at www.Mobility35.org.
