City to begin work on dangerous intersections

Monday, June 19, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Last week, City Council approved construction contracts that will pave the way for work to be done on some of Austin’s most dangerous intersections. The 2016 Mobility Bond provided $15 million in funds for safety improvements to more than two dozen “high-crash” intersections in the city. The first group of three intersections are Slaughter Lane and Alice Mae Lane, Pleasant Valley Road and Elmont Drive, and South Congress Avenue and Oltorf Street. The Slaughter and Alice Mae intersection is the first on the list. Crews are expected to install a new traffic signal there at the end of the month.
