City, state hold virtual public hearing on Burnet Road

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 by Tai Moses

The city’s Corridor Program Office and the Texas Department of Transportation are teaming up to host a virtual public hearing on the bond-funded improvements to Burnet Road. These improvements are intended to improve mobility and safety on Burnet between U.S. Highway 183 and the MoPac Expressway frontage road. There are no bike lanes on this road, the sidewalks are unconnected and the open drainage ditch poses a risk to pedestrians, according to the city, which has documented 918 traffic accidents on this section of Burnet in the last five years, four of which were fatalities. The public hearing presentation, along with the project technical reports and other info, will be posted here starting 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 20, through 5 p.m. on Friday, June 5.
