I-35 at Riverside Drive
Virtual Open House

The Open House for the  I-35 at Riverside Drive project was held on July 21 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. Members of the community came to review materials, ask questions and submit comments about proposed improvements on I-35 at Riverside Drive.

Featuring the same materials as the Open House, the Virtual Open House will be available until August 3, 2015. The Virtual Open House provides an opportunity for the project team to continue to gather feedback from the community regarding proposed improvements. Please explore the exhibits and schematics below, check out our Fact Sheet and the Open House presentation, and use the contact form at the bottom of the page to submit your comments and questions. All comments received between July 21-Aug 3, 2015 will be included in the official project record.   ​ ​


I-35 at Riverside Drive

​Why Improvements are Needed

I-35 is a key transportation corridor for Travis County and the state. The portion of I-35 at Riverside Drive is one of the most congested corridors in Travis County, with bottlenecks occurring regularly on the mainlanes, frontage roads and cross-streets throughout the corridor.

Project Purpose

The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility. The proposed improvements include:
  • Replace bridge crossings at Riverside Drive and Woodland Avenue
  • Widen I-35 bridges over Lady Bird Lake to accommodate divided travel lanes and widened shoulders
  • Add collector-distributor lanes under Riverside Drive to improve intersection traffic flow
  • Modify existing mainlanes to improve sight distance
  • Improve bicycle and pedestrian facility along I-35 frontage roads and Riverside Drive

Details and Timeline

The environmental study and design began in fall 2014. The process will incorporate public input from ongoing stakeholder meetings, this open house, and a public hearing. The environmental study and schematic design are anticipated to be complete in early 2016. Construction funding has not yet been identified.
