ATX Together: The Future of I-35
Posted on Feb 14, 2021
ATX Together: The Future of I-35 is now available to stream.
Austin’s most famous dividing line is at a crossroads. I-35 stands as a reminder of our city’s segregated past. Close to a century ago, city leaders passed a plan to ensure people of color lived east of the highway. Now, Austin is facing a once in a generation opportunity to repair that legacy of racism and rebuild I-35, making it a community resource rather than a barrier.
What is being proposed for the I-35 redevelopment project?
