Concept Menu: District 6 $2M mobility re-allocation

Post by Don Zimmerman » Mon Aug 31, 2015 4:41 pm

Re-allocate the FY2016 Austin Transportation Department and Public Works Department capacity/capital improvement project allocations to include $2M to fund: a study to widen Anderson Mill Road between U.S. Highway 183 and Ranch Road 620 so that there are 2 lanes of traffic flow in each direction; a study to widen Parmer Lane north of SH-45 to 3 lanes each way; a study to widen Ranch Road FM 620 between Pecan Park Boulevard (Lakeline Mall) and Ranch to Market Road 2222; adding sidewalks on Anderson Mill Road between U.S. Highway 183 and Olson Drive where sidewalks do not currently exist; and adding sidewalks on McNeil Drive between U.S. Highway 183 and Los Indios Trail.

Many THANKS to co-sponsors CM Houston, CM Troxclair, CM Gallo

CM Zimmerman, are you requesting these projects for funding from the quarter-cent Cap Metro allocation to District 6?

CM Pool,

No. This is a re-allocation of the proposed budget CIP numbers, as noted originally, not connected to the CapMetro dollars.

Because we postponed deliberation of the CapMetro dollars, we do not know how those funds will be allocated; moreover they have public transit policy constraints imposed.
