“It is always gratifying to break ground on a new project that will provide relief from traffic congestion and improve mobility and safety,” said Thomas Nilsson, President of Fluor’s Infrastructure business. “This project reinforces Fluor’s commitment to deliver quality infrastructure and supports economic development and commerce in Texas. This is the first in a series of vital infrastructure projects to rebuild the I-35 corridor in response to business and population expansion in Austin, one of the country’s fastest growing regions.”
Interstate 35 through Austin is one of the most traveled interstates in Texas and serves as the backbone of the local, regional, and national transportation network. This section of the interstate serves more than 150,000 vehicles per day.
Substantial completion is anticipated in early 2028.
