Vision Zero maintains focus

Monday, November 21, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

On Monday, the city’s Transportation Department will begin constructing long-term safety improvements at (and near) the intersection of North Lamar Boulevard and Rundberg Lane as part of Austin’s Vision Zero program. The intersection is the third of five “high priority intersections” identified for construction funding in September 2015, and it is expected to cost $647,000. That cost includes construction of raised medians on Lamar Boulevard, the addition of high-visibility crosswalks, the reconstruction of pedestrian ramps and other fixes to pedestrian crossings. For a list of all the plans, impacts to bus routes, updates on other projects associated with Vision Zero and anticipated lane closures (which will occur between November 2016 and February 2017), there is more information available online. The Transportation Department anticipates that this component of the project will be complete in early February of next year.
