Texas Bill HB 2114 raises possibility of toll lanes on Interstate 35 in Austin

Looks like tolls could be back on the table for Interstate 35 if a local legislator has his way.

Rep. John Cyrier, R-Lockhart, filed House Bill 2114 last week. The bill would mark a 28-mile stretch of I-35 – from the Texas 45 toll road in Round Rock to Texas 45 in southern Travis County – as eligible to be developed and expanded through a comprehensive development agreement, which is a form of public-private partnership.
