Talking regional roads with CAMPO
Friday, June 14, 2019 by Ryan Thornton
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is holding a series of open house public outreach meetings over the coming week. The meetings will be presenting ideas generated by the recently compiled Regional Arterials Study, the MoKan/Northeast Subregional Plan, and the region’s plan for transportation demand management. The Transportation Policy Board discussed the arterials study Monday with explicit trepidation that the public would mistake the proposed roadways and transportation projects as set in stone. To the contrary, CAMPO staff clarified that the study is simply a collection of ideas gathered from leaders and stakeholders throughout the region and do not reflect current plans or available funding. With that made known, CAMPO is asking for feedback on those proposed arterials in order to begin the process of deleting the bad ideas and refining the good ones. Austin and Travis County residents are invited to view that study along with the MoKan/Northeast plan this morning, Friday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Project Connect Office at 607 Congress Ave. Other meeting times and locations can be found at the CAMPO website where you may also view study drafts and submit feedback through a survey.
