North Lamar safety improvements completed

Friday, December 11, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Austin Transportation Department has completed safety and mobility improvements at the North Lamar Boulevard/Payton Gin Road intersection. The changes “include new shared use paths for people walking and riding bikes, new high-visibility crosswalks, traffic signal upgrades, and a new median on North Lamar Boulevard near the intersection,” according to the department’s news release. Assistant City Manager Gina Fiandaca said, “We’ve seen significant crash reductions after other intersection safety projects have been built in Austin. We’re excited to deliver a solution to what had been a challenging, high-crash intersection for many years.” The project is part of the 2016 Mobility Bond Intersection Safety/Vision Zero program.
