I agree. I'd really love to see the cut and cap segments align more closely to the Reconnect Austin plan:
•Depress the main lanes of the interstate below grade from south of Holly St. to north of 15th St.;
•Structure the walls of the depressed main lanes so they can support a future cap along the entire corridor;
•Rebuild all the bridges that currently cross I-35 and build them to Austin’s Great Streets standards;
•Re-engage every historic connection across the highway for all users, including those currently not addressed in the Implementation Plan (2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th, and 10th);
•Design the frontage roads as multi-modal, moderate speed arterials that function as part of the grid
