About the I-35 Capital Express Central Project

The I-35 Capital Express Central project is located in the central region of the Austin metropolitan area for a distance of approximately 8 miles along I-35 between US 290 East and SH 71/Ben White Boulevard, with additional flyovers at I-35 and US 290 East.

The I-35 Capital Express Central project proposes to add two, non-tolled managed lanes in each direction along I-35 in the project area. The proposed project also includes various operational and safety enhancements, including reconstructing ramps, bridges and intersections; improving frontage roads; enhancing bicycle and pedestrian paths; and accommodating transit routes.

Managed lanes, such as high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, are a set of lanes within a highway that are separated from the mainlanes, and access is controlled by placing restrictions on use. They are designed to provide a less congested route than adjacent general-purpose lanes during peak periods for qualifying vehicles. HOV lanes are reserved for the use of carpools, vanpools, transit vehicles and emergency responders.
