Shaping the future of the Interstate 35E Corridor in Farmers Branch

The IH-35E corridor is an important employment center for Farmers Branch and the region. New development within the DART station area, such as the Shops at Mustang Station, will continue to be a catalyst to spur additional development within the IH-35E corridor, creating an opportunity to transform this corridor and create an impressive gateway into Farmers Branch.

The IH-35E Corridor vision study will provide a clear picture of what the corridor on both sides of Interstate 35E through Farmers Branch will look like in the next 20 years, including land uses (such as industrial, office, commercial, and residential), and the public realm.  Analysis and public consultation completed to date has provided information necessary for the consultant team, led by Interface Studio to develop ideas on how the Corridor could develop in the future.  

Forme el futuro del corredor de la Autopista Interestatal 35E en Farmers Branch

El corredor IH-35E es un centro de empleo importante para Farmers Branch y la región. Desarrollo nuevo en la área de la estación de DART, como Shops at Mustang Station, continuará siendo un catalizador para estimular desarrollos adicional dentro del corredor IH-35E. Esto está creando una oportunidad para transformar este corredor y crear una puerta de entrada a Farmers Branch impresionante.

El estudio de visión del Corredor IH-35E proveerá una imagen clara de cómo se verá en los próximos 20 años el corredor a ambos lados de la autopista Interestatal 35E a través de Farmers Branch, incluyendo los usos de la propiedad (tales como industriales, oficinas, comerciales y residenciales), y el ámbito público. Vea el análisis completado hasta la fecha. 

La ciudad de Farmers Branch y su equipo de consultores, dirigido por Interface Studio, han pasado los últimos meses escuchando a las partes interesadas sobre cómo se podría mejorar el corredor IH-35E. 

Project timeline:

The study will carry through to the fall of 2020, when it will go forward to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council for adoption.

There will be two primary public participation opportunities with an online survey in mid-June and a  second event this summer.
 ***Staff will reassess the proposed timelines on a regular basis and further modifications may be necessary based on the progression of the coronavirus. ***
