Input sought on MoPac improvements
The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority and the Texas Department of Transportation are holding an open house to seek community input on possible mobility improvements to MoPac Boulevard from Cesar Chavez Street to Slaughter Lane. Opinions from the open house will be incorporated into an environmental study to address traffic congestion on the 8-mile stretch of MoPac. Attendees will have the opportunity to review and comment on the preferred mobility improvements, talk with planners and engineers, ask questions and submit comments. No formal presentations will be given, and attendees are invited to come and go at their convenience. The open house is planned for 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Hill Country Middle School Cafeteria, 1300 Walsh Tarlton Lane. Those unable to attend may provide input online at a Virtual Open House set for Feb. 27 through March 9 at the project website, www.MoPacSouth.com.
