The sinkable I-35
Wednesday, August 24, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano
Austinites may not be in agreement about everything, but most of us do agree that Interstate 35 is the worst. And now, the Downtown Austin Alliance is asking us to agree on another thing – sinking the blasted road where it runs through downtown. Basically, the DAA is trying to raise awareness that the Texas Department of Transportation is currently conducting an environmental study and asking folks to weigh in on two options to reduce congestion on the roadway: either a) lowering the road or b) raising the road. In the DAA’s humble opinion, lowering is the way to go, and you can read up and watch videos about why this is the case as well as submit your own comments on the matter online here.
