Time to talk corridor improvements with ATD

Friday, August 24, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

Austin’s Transportation Department and the Corridor Program Office have scheduled a pair of open houses for the community to discuss planned improvements to William Cannon Drive and Burnet Road that are included in the city’s $720 million mobility bond approved by voters in 2016. The session for the William Cannon improvements will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Langford Elementary School, 2206 Blue Meadow Drive. Included in the construction are measures to reduce vehicle delays and crashes, improve transit effectiveness, and create continuous accessibility on sidewalks as well as bicycle facilities on the entire corridor. The session for Burnet Road is scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, at St. John’s United Methodist Church, 2140 Allandale Road. That project includes many of the same goals as the William Cannon construction. To see detailed plans for those and other road projects, visit
