TxDOT’s I-35 Capital Express Central Project is a massive, $4.9 billion project that will run through the heart of Austin, and citizen input is crucial! A virtual, online public meeting is available through September 8 on TxDOT’s website.
TxDOT is reconstructing this section of I-35 to address safety, mobility, and east-west connectivity needs. The current I-35 corridor layout does not meet the needs of its users, so receiving input from Austin residents is integral to project success.
If you'd like to leave feedback on the project, you may do so by:
- Filling out the contact form available on TxDOT’s website
- Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Leaving a voicemail by calling (512) 651-2948
- Mailing comments to I-35 Capital Express Central Project Team, 1608 W. 6th Street, Austin, TX 78703
Comments are due by Wednesday, Sept. 8 to be part of the official record.
"We are very supportive of the new managed lane system that will define the new design," Austin Transportation Director Rob Spillar said. "We are hopeful that TxDOT explores maximizing the efficiency of the managed lanes that can further incentivize transit access into these key employment locations like transit-only ramps, park-and-rides, and similar facilities.”
