Ahead of big changes, transit tweaks coming to a street near you

Wednesday, March 28, 2018 by Caleb Pritchard

Expect another small burst of transit-enhancing improvements to hit the road this year. On Monday, the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s board of directors unanimously approved a three-year, $3 million agreement with the city aimed at improving bus speed and reliability. The plan calls for 10 projects to be undertaken between now and September, with half aimed for completion in time for Capital Metro’s sweeping June 2018 service changes, now known as the Cap Remap. Those five projects include a new traffic signal at Hogan Avenue and Montopolis Drive; improved right-turn movements at the southeast corner of 45th and Red River streets; improved right-turn movements at the northeast corner of Sixth Street and North Lamar Boulevard; a new left-hand turn lane for buses turning southbound from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Guadalupe Street; and new stop signs at Webberville Road and Govalle Avenue and Springdale Road and Govalle Avenue. Capital Metro will cover the costs of the new infrastructure with funds budgeted in its five-year Capital Improvement Plan.
