I-35 Resources and Opinions

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) plans to expand I-35 through central Austin. At the same time, several alternative concepts have emerged from the community, including Rethink35 and Reconnect Austin.

Several groups have come out strongly against TxDOT's expansion plans, with recent statements from the Downtown Austin Neighborhood Association (DANA) and the Pedestrian Advisory Council (PAC) and Bicycle Advisory Council (BAC).

The Austin Chronicle also recently published an op-ed by former city council member and FAN member Chris Riley, in which he argues strong against TxDOT's plans, provides some historical perspective, and draws attention to how common it is to route highways around cities rather than through them.
