Help us Improve Airport Boulevard
We are seeking feedback on mobility, safety and connectivity improvements to be constructed on Airport Boulevard. These improvements are in design.
On Saturday, September 15, 2018, we hosted an open house meeting from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Austin Community College Highland, 6101 Highland Campus Dr, Austin, TX 78752. At the meeting, we provided information about planned improvements for Airport Boulevard and got community feedback that will help refine the design of the improvements.
If you were unable to attend, you still have an opportunity to review the informational materials from the open house and provide input using the links below.
