TxDOT Hosts Open House for IH-35 Safety Improvements - Tuesday, April 2, 2019

The Texas Department of Transportation will conduct an open house to discuss proposed mobility and safety improvements at I-35 from SE Inner Loop to RM 1431 (southbound) on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at Carver Elementary School Cafeteria, located at 4901 Scenic Lake Drive in Georgetown. 

The open house is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to provide an opportunity for members of the public to review project details. Team members will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.

The project includes reconstructing and reconfiguring the I-35 at Westinghouse Road interchange by removing the Westinghouse Road bridge and constructing the I-35 mainlanes over Westinghouse Road. The project will also improve the intersection at I-35 and SE Inner Loop, construct a westbound to southbound continuous flow intersection at Westinghouse Road, improve the existing southbound I-35 frontage road from north of SE Inner Loop to RM 1431, reverse the entrance/exit ramps along the southbound I-35 frontage road between SE Inner Loop and RM 1431, and add bicycle and pedestrian sidewalks and paths.

The environmental study and schematic design are anticipated to be complete in winter 2020. If approved, construction could begin in spring 2023.

Maps, drawings and other project information will be on display at the open house. Comments from the public are requested. Those unable to attend the open house in person can visit the virtual open house at www.mobility35openhouse.com to provide comments from April 4 through April 19, 2019.
