In 2016, Austin voters approved $720 million for transportation and mobility improvements throughout Austin. The majority of that funding, $482 million, was earmarked for corridor mobility improvements.
With that funding, the City is designing and constructing mobility, safety and connectivity improvements on nine key corridors. Those corridors are:
North Lamar Boulevard from US 183 to Howard Lane/I-35
Burnet Road from Koenig Lane to Mopac Expressway
Airport Boulevard from North Lamar Boulevard to US 183
East MLK Jr. Boulevard/FM 969 from US Hwy. 183 to Decker Lane
South Lamar Boulevard from Riverside Drive to Ben White Boulevard/US 290
East Riverside Drive from Riverside Drive to SH 71
Guadalupe Street from MLK Jr. Boulevard to West 29th Street
William Cannon Drive from Southwest Parkway to McKinney Falls Parkway
Slaughter Lane from FM 1826 to Vertex Boulevard
Austin City Council adopted a Corridor Construction Program in April 2018 that prioritizes the corridor improvements for funding. The design phase of the Corridor Construction Program is currently underway and could last 12 to 36 months, depending on the project. The design phase includes preliminary engineering activities, such as land surveys, refinements to the mobility improvements, updates to cost estimates and public input.
City staff will return to City Council in spring 2019 to provide an update on preliminary engineering. At that time, City staff will seek City Council approval to proceed with full design.
