COMMUNITY INVITED TO OPEN HOUSES FOR I-35 STUDY IN HAYS COUNTY

 

AUSTIN — The Texas Department of Transportation is hosting two open house meetings for the Interstate 35 Hays County Corridor Improvement Study. This study is part of the I-35 Capital Area Improvement Program and will analyze the 23.7-mile segment of I-35 from State Highway 45 Southeast to Posey Road.

The purpose of the open house is to gather community input on possible solutions to improve mobility and safety, as well as transit reliability and emergency response times, within the I-35 corridor. Citizens will be able to learn about the study, ask questions of project team members, and share ideas for improvements.

Project team members will be sharing project maps and preliminary goals for the study. No formal presentation will be given and attendees are invited to come-and-go at their convenience.
