TxDOT to Present Preferred Design for I-35 Capital Express North Project During Public Hearing

The Texas Department of Transportation will launch a virtual public hearing with an in-person option to gather input on the recommended improvements to I-35 from SH 45 North to US 290 East.

The $400 million improvement project, known as the I-35 Capital Express North project, proposes adding one high-occupancy vehicle managed lane in each direction along I-35. The project includes reconstructing six bridges, constructing a diverging diamond intersection at Wells Branch Parkway, improving bicycle and pedestrian paths, and making additional safety and mobility improvements throughout the corridor.
