AUSTIN, TX — The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) was joined by Texas Transportation Commission Chairman J. Bruce Bugg, Jr., Commissioner Robert Vaughn, and other officials to break ground on the I-35 Capital Express North project. This is the second of three projects in the I-35 Capital Express Program to begin construction.

“Today is an important day to reduce traffic congestion along the I-35 corridor in the Austin area, which is one of the most congested segments of roadway in Texas,” Bugg said. “The improvements we’re making are a part of Governor Abbott’s vision to clear traffic logjams and get Texans moving quickly again.”

This $606 million Texas Clear Lanes project will construct one high-occupancy-vehicle managed lane in each direction along I-35 from SH 45 North to US 290 East. The project will also reconstruct six bridges, add a diverging diamond interchange (DDI) at Wells Branch Parkway, reconstruct entrance/exit ramps, add intersection bypass lanes, and construct shared-use paths throughout the corridor.

“The I-35 Capital Express North project represents an essential transportation route for local commuters,” said TxDOT Austin District Engineer Tucker Ferguson. “Today, we celebrate a project that offers enhanced safety and improved mobility, as well as reliable transit options and better bike and pedestrian paths.”

The contractor for the project is Pulice Construction, Inc. Construction is anticipated to be complete in late 2028, weather permitting.
