I-35 comment period extended
Wednesday, August 25, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano
The Texas Department of Transportation has agreed to take public comments a bit longer on its plan to expand I-35 through downtown Austin. For those not in the loop, current plans could demolish dozens of buildings near Cherrywood, and TxDOT remains doggedly determined to widen the highway as it runs through the city, despite plans from the public that would do the opposite in an attempt to calm the impact of a major highway running through the center of town. If you like either of those plans, hate both plans or simply need someone to talk to about I-35, the public comment period has been extended through Sept. 24, so head over to the virtual open house now.
