I-35 Capital Express South

I-35 Capital Express South Map

Project Description

Lack of mobility on I-35 threatens the economic livelihood of our city and our state. Improvements are needed due to population and employment growth, which have caused increased congestion in the area.

The I-35 Capital Express South project proposes to add two non-tolled high-occupancy vehicle managed lanes in each direction along I-35 from SH 71/Ben White Boulevard to SH 45 Southeast.

The project will also reconstruct bridges, add pedestrian and bicycle paths, and make additional safety and mobility improvements within the project limits. View the fact sheet.
