Prop. 1 is a $720 million bond proposition centered around traffic congestion relief by improving nine of the city’s major corridors. The Smart Corridor Plan is divided into three major categories: The Corridors ($482 million), Regional Mobility ($101 million), and Local Mobility & Active Transportation ($137 million).
The Smart Corridor portion covers nine major thoroughfares: North Lamar, South Lamar, Burnet, Riverside, Airport, East MLK/FM969, Guadalupe, Slaughter, and William Cannon. Community-driven plans have already been completed for six. Guadalupe is currently being studied and Slaughter/William Cannon has yet to begin. Also included is funding for additional corridor plans.
The Regional Mobility section contains traffic congestion improvements to intersections and major roadways such as Loop 360, Spicewood Springs Road, Parmer Lane, Anderson Mill Road, 620 & 2222, and Old Bee Caves Road.
The Local Mobility & Active Transportation section includes $11 million for planning, design, engineering, and construction of local road repairs, as well as $37.5 million for sidewalk improvements, $27.5 million for Safe Routes to Schools, $26 million for urban trails, $20 million for bicycle infrastructure, and $15 million for funding safety-related intersection improvements.
