The Texas Department of Transportation is working on safety and mobility improvements for I-35 through the Capital Area. This includes over 40 projects planned to address congestion and enhance safety along and across I-35 without wholesale reconstruction of the corridor. In an effort to ensure TxDOT improves not only the technical aspects of I-35, but the visual ones as well, they are developing guidelines for aesthetic treatments from Rundberg Lane to Woodland Avenue.
Citizens can help choose how some of these projects will look by sharing their feedback. An aesthetics plan helps promote a cohesive approach for aesthetic treatments along I-35 and ensures the project designs are as visually pleasing as possible, while prioritizing safety and mobility for all users. Aesthetics are only a fraction of total project costs and include visual elements like hardscape, retaining walls, lighting, landscape, railings, etc.
A public survey is now open to allow the community to vote on their favorite aesthetic concept on I-35. The winning concept will become the basis for I-35 aesthetic guidelines for projects that may be constructed in the future along I-35 from Rundberg Lane to Woodland Avenue.
