A three-year, $42.6 million project that included the reconstruction of the Oltorf Street bridge over I-35 and the improvement of entrance and exit ramps is complete as of June 25, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
In a video presented at the June 25 Texas Transportation Commission meeting, TTC Chairman J. Bruce Bugg said the project should reduce travel times in the area, and Rep. Eddie Rodriguez, D-Austin, said the improvements will improve and enhance safety.
The completed Oltorf Street project is part of ongoing TxDOT work along I-35 in Williamson, Travis and Hays counties.
In addition to the ongoing projects, TxDOT is planning to add two nontolled managed lanes to a stretch of I-35 that runs from Williamson County to Buda. That project, worth more than $5 billion, could begin construction in 2022.
