City opens I-35 stitch session

Wednesday, December 15, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

With plans moving forward for a massive $4.9 billion project to expand and lower Interstate 35 through downtown Austin, the city and the Downtown Austin Alliance have turned their attention to how “cap and stitch” might help close the gap. The public is invited to weigh in on the plan via a new virtual open house that offers an overview of the project and illuminates the potential of plazas that would span the highway (caps) and enhanced bridges over the road (stitches). The open house begins today, and features a video presentation on the project and a chance to offer feedback through a survey. Both can be found online here.
