Check out the mobility bond progress report
Wednesday, June 10, 2020 by Tai Moses
Austinites who voted for the mobility bond in November 2016 may be curious to know what their $720 million has accomplished. The answer is, a lot. The bond’s Year Three Progress Report, now available as a PDF on the bond website, offers a detailed snapshot of all the work completed with mobility bond dollars over the past three years. More than 200 projects have been completed, and many of the biggest ones are beginning construction soon. Many of the projects have enabled kids to walk and bike to and from school more safely. And it’s the gift that keeps on giving, providing funding “for safety and mobility projects citywide, including major regional and corridor projects, bikeways projects, sidewalks, urban trails, and more.” Sounds like progress to us.
