Via Austin Transportation Department

The preliminary draft of the City of Austin’s Local Mobility Annual Plan is now available online for public review. It outlines anticipated sidewalk, Safe Routes to School, bicycle, urban trail, safety/Vision Zero, and substandard street/capital renewal projects to be taken up with funding from the 2016 Mobility Bond in 2018 and beyond.

You can read and download the Local Mobility Annual Plan, view an interactive project map, and provide feedback through January 14, 2018.

The 2016 Mobility Bond invests $137 million in local mobility improvements. The Local Mobility Program includes six distinct categories: Bikeways, Safety/Vision Zero, Sidewalks, Safe Routes to School, Urban Trails and Substandard Streets/Capital Renewal.

To enhance transparency with the community and leverage coordination opportunities within the Local Mobility Program, the Austin Transportation Department developed an annual planning process called the Local Mobility Annual Plan. This preliminary draft lists projects to be taken up in 2018 and beyond. In many cases, implementation depends upon successful feasibility analysis, coordination and/or additional public processes.

Final publication of the 2018 Local Mobility Annual Plan is scheduled for February 2018. This annual Local Mobility Annual Plan process will be repeated each year in order to capture any changes or new opportunities that coordination among our local mobility partners may present.
