Airport Blvd

The primary goal of the Airport Boulevard Corridor Development Program is to develop recommendations to improve safety, mobility, sustainability, and quality of life along Airport Boulevard from North Lamar Boulevard to US 183. This includes the development of a multi-modal program of improvements that would ultimately meet the needs of all users of the transportation system within and around the corridor. The Corridor Development Program will work in concert with redevelopment initiatives throughout the corridor to ensure the safe, efficient, and multi-modal accessibility that was identified as a priority through public participation in the project.

 

East Riverside

The goal of the East Riverside Drive Corridor Development Program is to develop a set of recommendations to improve safety, mobility and quality of life along Riverside Drive between IH 35 and SH 71. This program would transform the East Riverside Drive Corridor from a “through” place to a “to” place by taking the vision of the East Riverside Drive Master Plan and outline an execution plan to make this vision a reality. This report involves a multi-faceted “Complete Street” approach to provide a well developed and high quality plan which provides a dynamic, pedestrian friendly environment while offering multimodal access to areas of work, residence and recreation.

 

MLK, Jr.

The FM 969 / East MLK, Jr. Boulevard Corridor is one of several priority corridors identified in the 2010 City of Austin transportation bond package. This corridor is located in East Austin and extends east through Travis County to Bastrop County. Imagine Austin, the city’s newly adopted comprehensive plan, has identified the area served by FM 969 / East MLK Jr. Boulevard as a desired growth area. The goal of the FM 969 / East MLK Jr Blvd Corridor Development Program is to develop a set of recommendations to improve safety, mobility and quality of life along FM 969 between US 183 and Webberville.

 

North Lamar/Burnet

The purpose of this corridor development program was to develop a set of recommendations to improve safety, mobility, and quality of life along Burnet Road (from Koenig Lane to MoPac) and North Lamar Boulevard (from US 183 to IH 35). Both Burnet Road and North Lamar Boulevard have unique drainage issues. Their street storm drain systems consist of various combinations of open ditches and some curb and gutter. This results in issues for pedestrian access in most areas, as well as some flooding. A significant portion of residents along Burnet and North Lamar corridors are dependent on transportation modes such walking, biking, and transit. Recommendations were therefore developed with a focus on all road users, including pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users, not just motorists.

 

South Lamar

Rapid growth along South Lamar Boulevard has created safety and mobility concerns along the corridor. The South Lamar Corridor Transportation Improvement Program was created to improve safety and accessibility along the corridor, while also improving mobility for everyone, people who walk, people who bike, those that use transit and those that drive. The program aimed to identify future transportation needs of the corridor and enhancements that could help to create a multimodal transportation system supportive of mixed-use, pedestrian and bicycle friendly development patterns.
