A plan is in the works by TxDOT to improve intersections along I-35 in Georgetown.
There’s an open house Thursday April 4th at Carver Elementary School Cafeteria, located at 4901 Scenic Lake Drive in Georgetown. Map Below
According to TxDot here’s what they are working to do:
-Reconstruct and reconfigure the I-35 at Westinghouse Road interchange by removing the Westinghouse Road bridge and constructing the I-35 mainlanes over Westinghouse Road.
-Improve the intersection at I-35 and SE Inner Loop
-Construct a westbound to southbound continuous flow intersection at Westinghouse Road
-Improve the existing southbound I-35 frontage road from north of SE Inner Loop to RM 1431
-Reverse the entrance/exit ramps along the southbound I-35 frontage road between SE Inner Loop and RM 1431
-Add bicycle and pedestrian sidewalks and paths
The environmental study and schematic design are anticipated to be complete in winter 2020. If approved, construction could begin in spring 2023.
Maps, drawings and other project information will be on display at the open house. Comments from the public are requested. Those unable to attend the open house in person can visit the virtual open house to provide comments from April 4 through April 19, 2019.
