“Since 2015, we’ve completed a dozen Texas Clear Lanes projects across the state,” Bugg said. “The I-35 at Parmer Lane project will help get Austin drivers out of congestion and back to the things they want and need to do.”
The $24.6-million project replaced the traditional intersection with a DDI, reconstructed the northbound bypass lane, added a southbound bypass lane, constructed right-turn lanes and dual left-turn lanes at the Parmer Lane and North Lamar Boulevard intersection, and improved bicycle and pedestrian paths throughout the corridor.
“As someone who has been a longtime advocate for transportation safety, diverging diamonds get us one step closer to ensuring that all road users are kept safe in the state that we love,” Israel said.
The contractor for the project was Primoris Services Corporation.
