SOS to rally against MoPac lanes

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Save Our Springs Alliance is planning a rally against the proposed State Highway 45 SW/MoPac loop and double-deck toll lanes over Lady Bird Lake. In a message to its supporters, SOS requested that people gather Saturday to protest the CTRMA’s plan to build four toll lanes on MoPac Boulevard from Cesar Chavez Road south to Slaughter Lane, including a double-deck bridge over Lady Bird Lake and Zilker Park with a flyover next to Austin High School. The SOS website said the plan would expand MoPac to 12 lanes, compared to only eight on I-35. Participants are asked to gather at 10:30 a.m. at the Roberta Crenshaw Pedestrian Bridge along with elected officials and neighborhood, parks and conservation leaders for the rally.
