TxDoT is having some open houses to get feedback about adding lanes to I-35. Below is more information from them.
â€œA new lane on I-35?â€ The Texas Department of Transportation is sharing recommendations for 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 the ongoing Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study as part of the Mobility35 Program. The PEL Study is focusing on the proposed I-35 Future Transportation Corridor (FTC), which would allow two additional travel lanes (one in each direction) within the existing I-35 right-of-way. The public meetings will present and gather public input on the recommended lane type alternative(s) for the FTC and the proposed segments of independent utility within the I-35 FTC PEL Study limits.
The public meetings will be held on Nov. 10, 12, and 13, 2014, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the following locations:
Monday, Nov. 10, 2014
Kealing Middle School Cafeteria
1607 Pennsylvania Avenue, Austin, TX 78702
Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014
Akins High School Cafeteria
10701 South First Street, Austin, TX 78748
Thursday, Nov. 13, 2014
Frank Fickett Scout Training and Service Center
12500 North I-35, Austin, TX 78753
The same information will be presented at each meeting location. The format of the meetings will be come-and-go; no formal presentations will be made. Citizens are invited to attend these meetings and to provide feedback on the recommended lane type alternatives being evaluated. Those unable to attend the meetings in-person can provide input online at a virtual public meeting that will run from Nov. 10 â€“ 24, 2014. More information about the study and a link to the online meeting will be available on the Mobility35 website at www.Mobility35.org. For more information about the public meetings, contact Stacey Benningfield by email at Stacey.Benningfield@txdot.gov or by telephone at 512-832-7369.
