Vision Zero Improvements Mean Safer Streets

As part of the Vision Zero Program to end Austin traffic fatalities, the Austin Transportation Department (ATD) has completed a safety improvement project around the intersection at North Lamar Boulevard and Rundberg Lane.

The upgrades include medians designed to reduce left-turn crashes, a new pedestrian hybrid beacon, a traffic signal with pedestrian crossings, high-visibility crosswalks, and accessible pedestrian ramps.

Over the course of the past year ATD has also completed Vision Zero safety improvement projects at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and I-35 frontage roads, Cameron Road and the US-183 service roads, and Mount Bonnell Road at RM 2222. ATD began Vision Zero improvements at Lamar Blvd. and Parmer Lane in March, which should wrap up this month.

The Vision Zero work means safer streets, which in turn make it easier for people to get around with mobility options and not rely solely on cars.
