I-35: Cap-and-stitch open house Saturday

Friday, August 26, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

This Saturday, the Downtown Austin Alliance and the city of Austin will hold an open house to discuss the future of Interstate 35. The event, which is free and open to the public, will focus on a Texas Department of Transportation proposal to widen and lower portions of I-35 through downtown Austin. As that proposal has evolved, the conversation has centered on the concept of a “cap and stitch” design that would create points of connection and public spaces across the highway. Following suit, Saturday’s conversation will focus on TxDOT’s project, Our Future 35: Austin’s Cap and Stitch Program. The discussion will feature community leaders and officials from TxDOT as well as artist activations from Ami Plasse, FANCHY Art, Justin Humphrey and Ray Price. Those interested in attending may register and find a schedule of events here.
