What is the Future of I-35?

Join the Downtown Alliance on Feb. 28 to hear preliminary recommendations for the future of I-35 from a national panel of experts coming to Austin to study the corridor.

As TxDOT advances plans to reconstruct and lower I-35 through central Austin, the Downtown Austin Alliance is convening the community to develop a vision and strategy to simultaneously enhance and connect our city along I-35.

To begin this process, we have engaged the Urban Land Institute's (ULI) National Advisory Services. A diverse panel of national experts will be in Austin to work with the community to gather input and evaluate the feasibility of potential enhancements surrounding the interstate. This study takes place concurrently with TxDOT's schematic design process for the corridor, which is considering lowering the highway between Airport Blvd. and Lady Bird Lake.
