The Texas Department of Transportation held two open meetings last weeks to discuss improvements towards the Interstate 35 Hays County corridor.

TxDot held two open house meetings at the Hays High School Cafeteria and the San Marcos Activity Center this past Tuesday and Thursday. The purpose for these meetings was to gather the community’s input on possible solutions to improve mobility and safety, as well as transit reliability and emergency response times. Christopher Bishop, Public Administrator for TxDot further explains the reasons behind the I-35 study.

“The Open house is designed to invite people in, to think about eventual improvements that could be done on interstate 35 corridor. There were no specific plans presented, it was designed to get feedback from people and have them tell us about a couple spots or areas they know and have them think about it and give us their input.”
– Christopher Bishop

The study will include a range of concepts that will be developed and analyzed. It will take into account the needs of drivers, transit riders, bicyclists, pedestrians, and surrounding businesses, neighborhoods, and communities. Some concepts identified through the improvement study will be incorporated into an implementation plan. Bishop discusses what the future holds going long term.

“This is a long term proposition, were taking suggestions and comments from people in places they drew on the maps and other suggestions. Those are all going to be calculated in the plans as too what are the kind of things people see, what are the things people want and how will this fit in trying to provide more mobility in that corridor. Its an early part of the process.”
– Christopher Bishop

 

Citizens can sign up to receive email updates, submit comments and questions, and request meetings with project team members online. Along with receiving updates and providing feedback, a virtual open house is now available to review details of the study. The virtual open house and all comments and suggestions can be found at mobility35.org.
