Longhorn Dam bridge gets new path

Tuesday, August 31, 2021 by Tai Moses

The Austin Transportation Department is celebrating the completion of a new 12-foot-wide shared-use path on the west side of South Pleasant Valley Road over the Longhorn Dam bridge. The project, which was finished last week, was funded by 2016 mobility bond dollars earmarked for a package of safety and mobility enhancements to South Pleasant Valley Road from Cesar Chavez Street to Elmont Drive. And there’s more to come: According to Transportation, “Future work will include the installation of new travel lane configurations, signal upgrades to better serve the Krieg Softball Complex and flex posts separating the north and southbound travel lanes to reduce motor vehicle crashes. Once complete, these changes will enhance safety for everyone on South Pleasant Valley Road, including the most vulnerable road users.”
