According to TxDOT's 2022 crash data, there were 73 fatal crashes on I-35 between Bexar County and Williamson County in just one year. That's one deadly crash every five days. The map above shows the locations of each fatal crash on I-35 in 2022.
Highways are dangerous, but there's a safer way to travel: rail. Compared to driving, rail transit has minuscule accidents that result in fatalities, and with modern infrastructure, that number could be as low as zero.
We need to give our residents a safe way to travel through Central Texas. Building the Lone Star Rail would connect San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Kyle, Buda, Austin, and Round Rock with a safe and reliable way to move through the region.
