Learn more about the city’s corridor program
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 by Nina Hernandez
A key piece of last year’s massive mobility bond is the chunk of funds set aside for the Corridor Mobility Program, which is made up of a series of plans to improve the city’s major thoroughfares including North Lamar Boulevard, Burnet Road, East Riverside Drive and Slaughter Lane. With nearly $500 million set aside for the effort, it’s an understandably complex issue with a lot of moving parts. Luckily, the city continues its outreach effort with a series of what it’s calling “pop-in meetings” that continue into next month. There’ll be staff on hand to answer questions and take in feedback. Today’s event is on the Burnet Road Corridor from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Walmart on Anderson Lane. “Community feedback plays an important role in helping shape Austin’s mobility future,” the city said in a Monday press release. “Thousands of people have provided feedback that is being considered as we develop the proposed Corridor Construction Program. We want to keep the conversation going, so please stop by to see us and pick up a cool treat or two!”
