If you're one of those who'd like to let us know how we should go about developing I-35 on the northeast side of town - specifically between George Beach near SAMMC and FM 1103 in Schertz - you'll want to attend an upcoming public hearing on the plan TxDOT is developing.
The proposed project would add four
elevated managed lanes (two lanes in each direction) to the existing highway between the south I-410 interchange and FM 1103. Direct connectors are included at the intersections of
I-35 and I-410 (south), I-35 and I-410 (north, near Windcrest), and at the intersection of I-35 and Loop 1604.
Managed lanes are being proposed as one way to potentially fund a development of this sort.
Public hearings allow anyone impacted by the project to hear a formal presentation about what is proposed, then leave comments. Comments may be submitted in writing or may be given online. While this hearing will take place at a physical location - Morgan's Wonderland Event Center - it will also be conducted virtually. Those wishing to join online my do so at www.i35northeast.com. The online hearing will be available February 26 through March 9.
The in-person hearing will take place at the Morgan's Wonderland Event Center on Thursday, Feb. 26, beginning at 5 p.m. The formal presentation will be delivered at 6 p.m., and TxDOT staff will hear comments from the public until the comments have been exhausted.
