Event description
Join us to hear preliminary recommendations for the future of I-35 from a national panel of experts coming to Austin to study the corridor.

About this Event

As TxDOT advances plans to reconstruct and lower I-35 through central Austin, the Downtown Austin Alliance is convening the community to develop a vision and strategy to simultaneously enhance and connect our city along I-35.

To begin this process, we have engaged the Urban Land Institute's (ULI) National Advisory Services. A diverse panel of national experts will be in Austin to work with the community to gather input and evaluate the feasibility of potential enhancements surrounding the interstate. This study takes place concurrently with TxDOT's schematic design process for the corridor, which is considering lowering the highway between Airport Blvd. and Lady Bird Lake.

Join us as the panel presents their preliminary analysis and recommendations for a new future of I-35 to the community.

7:45 AM: Registration & Coffee

8:15 AM: Presentation begins

The final ULI report to be completed in late 2020 will include recommendations for funding and implementation. Throughout the year, the Downtown Alliance will continue to engage the community for their input, as well as translate the vision into an actionable project.

Getting to the event: We encourage you to take transit, carpool, bike, walk or take rideshare to the event! If you are coming from downtown, CapMetro's #4 bus drops off directly in front of the campus at E. 7th St. and Chicon St. A limited amount of parking is available in a parking lot on Chalmers Ave. Street parking is available along E. 8th St. and Chalmers Ave as indicated on the map below.
