ATD launches new pilot program
Wednesday, May 5, 2021 by Tai Moses
Community members and neighborhood residents familiar with the North University-Heritage-Rosedale Neighborhood Bikeways project will soon be able to try out a new design, courtesy of the Austin Transportation Department. After conducting community engagement, staffers identified a “new preferred design” for West 31st Street/Shoal Creek Boulevard between West 34th Street and Lamar Boulevard. The new design includes a shared-use path integrated into the street, an off-street trail connection, advisory speed signs, and keeping the parking on the north side of the street. To test out the new elements, the project team is conducting a short-term pilot project using street markings, cones and signage. They’ll monitor the pilot to see how well it works and will “make adjustments as needed based on community feedback.”
