TxDOT Invites Public to Virtual and In-Person Open Houses for I-35 Expansion in Georgetown to Round RockSource: Google Street View

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is stepping into the virtual arena by hosting an open house—bolstered by an in-person counterpart—to hash out the details of its latest undertaking: a substantial expansion project for I-35 stretching from Georgetown's SH 29/University Avenue to Round Rock's SH 45 North. According to an announcement, the initiative is geared toward accommodating Williamson County's surging transportation demands and enhancing roadway safety.

Starting at a precise 5 p.m. on April 18, interested parties can tap into the virtual open house which flaunts a pre-recorded presentation, sprinkled with audio-visual aids for an immersive informative experience. The entire package will be up for grabs at TxDOT's digital doorstep; just punch in "I-35 Georgetown to Round Rock" into their search bar, and voila—you're virtually there. Accompanying the online event, flesh-and-blood citizens can also exercise their civic muscles at the physical location furnished by the agency.

Deep-diving into the project's finer points, the upgrade promises a pair of non-tolled high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) managed lanes taking up residence in each direction on the interstate. The plans don't shy away from ambition with additional flyovers slated for I-35 and SH 45 North along with tangled ramp reworks, bridge overhauls, fine-tuned intersections, and shared-use paths scattered across the corridor.

The open house isn't confined to mere showcase; it doubles as a platform for public input which the project team vows to mesh into the preliminary designs they're piecing together. Voices hoping to echo in the official project documentation have until the fast approaching May 3 to turn their thoughts into contributions.

For those with queries or eager to chisel their opinions into the project's foundation, point your dispatches to [email protected] or ring up (737) 330-7164. The future of I-35 might just pivot on the keystrokes and calls of its community stakeholders.
