West, TX — Thursday evening, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., TxDOT will offer a construction update and look-ahead for the 5A project, which is from Waco to West and the 5B project, which is from West to Abbott. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the presentation will start at 6 p.m. Engineers, project managers and mobility coordinators will be on hand to answer questions.
The meeting will address what is to be expected as expansion continues on I-35 in the next six months.
TxDOT officials also want to remind motorists, please observe all warning signs, traffic control devices, and police officers in the project area. As a reminder, traffic fines double in construction areas when workers are present, whether or not they are visible.
Efforts to improve the I-35 corridor throughout the state would not be possible without the support of local governments, the Texas Legislature and the U.S. Congress. In addition to the ongoing $1.9 billion dollar expansion of I-35 through TxDOT's Waco District, a number of critical projects are underway in the Dallas/Fort Worth region to improve I-35 connections to I-820 and I-635, thanks to a partnership with the private sector. Meanwhile, TxDOT continues to plan for the long-term future of the I-35 corridor through the MY 35 citizen-driven planning process.
