We need your help. As you may be aware, the recently announced IH-35 project is in jeopardy. We just found out that TxDOT Commissioners will meet next week to determine action on their Unified Transportation Projects list. The list contains pending toll road and managed lane projects and IH-35 will likely not be included for advancement. We need to get as many people as possible to sign up on TxDOT’s online portal to support the inclusion of IH-35 and other transportation-related projects in Central Texas. 
 
It only takes a few minutes to submit your support. We have included a statement below that you can copy and paste into the comment field. The deadline for online submissions is Monday, December 11 at 5 pm. 
 
You are limited to 350 characters for online submittal – please feel free to use/modify this statement:
 
I’m in support of moving forward on managed express lane & other toll projects to help address the congestion problems in Central Texas. I encourage TxDOT to add the managed lane project on I-35 to the Unified Transportation Plan (UTP) and ensure work on SH 130, US 183 North, MoPac South and the Y in Oak Hill are also allowed to move forward.
