I-35 Capital Express Central

I-35-Capital Express Central Map

Project Description

The I-35 Capital Express Central project is located in the central region of the Austin metropolitan area for a distance of approximately 8 miles along I-35 between US 290 East and SH 71/Ben White Boulevard, with additional flyovers at I-35 and US 290 East.

The I-35 Capital Express Central project proposes to add two non-tolled high-occupancy vehicle managed lanes in each direction along I-35 from US 290 East to SH 71/Ben White Boulevard, with additional flyovers at I-35 and US 290 East. The proposed project also includes various operational and safety enhancements, including reconstructing ramps, bridges and intersections; improving frontage roads; enhancing bicycle and pedestrian paths; and accommodating transit routes.

Project Scoping

The environmental process is a multi-year process, and scoping occurs at the beginning of the environmental study, which is where we are now. Scoping is an open process involving the public and federal, state and local agencies that helps determine a range of issues, alternatives and potential environmental impacts.

Due to expressed interest from members of the working group, this meeting will focus on the Urban Land Institute’s recommendations to create caps, also known as lids or deck plazas, and stitches, which are sometimes defined as wide bridge crossings. As a follow-up to the last meeting, TxDOT will also provide an update on improvements for people walking and riding bicycles.

Community involvement is essential to this project’s success. CapEx VOICE will build upon outreach that has already been conducted, allowing the public a more in-depth role in the process. Meetings of CapEx VOICE will be held throughout the remainder of the environmental process. If you choose to participate, we encourage you to attend every meeting. Participation is open to all. You are welcome to share this invitation with other community members.

El CapEx VOICE se llevará a cabo en inglés. Si usted necesita un intérprete o un traductor de documentos porque su idioma principal no es el inglés o tiene alguna dificultad para comunicarse eficazmente en inglés, se le proporcionará uno. Si usted tiene alguna discapacidad y necesita ayuda, se pueden hacer arreglos especiales para atender la mayoría de las necesidades. Si usted necesita servicios de interpretación o traducción o usted es una persona con alguna discapacidad que requiera una adaptación para asistir a y participar en CapEx VOICE, por favor póngase en contacto con Claire Wooldridge, al número 512-913-2027 a más tardar a las 4 p.m. hora central, miercoles, el 7 de julio.

Por favor únase a nosotros para la tercera reunión de CapEx VOICE, el grupo de trabajo comunitario para el proyecto I-35 Capital Express Central. Debido al interés expresado por los miembros del grupo, esta reunión se enfocará en las recomendaciones del Urban Land Institute para crear tapas, también conocidas como cubiertas con plazas, y puntos, que a veces se definen como cruces de puentes anchos. Como seguimiento de la última reunión, TxDOT también proporcionará una actualización sobre las mejoras para las personas que caminan y montan en bicicleta.
