Corridor Mobility Program

The 2016 Mobility Bond provides $482 million for corridor improvement projects. Corridors are primary roadways that affect the overall transportation network. They are used for getting around, destinations for residents and visitors, and home to businesses as well as many Austinites. The 2016 Mobility Bond Corridor Program is the development, design, and construction of projects along key Austin corridors that enhance mobility, safety, and connectivity for all users—whether you drive, bike, walk, or take transit.



Corridor Improvement Projects

The Austin City Council established a Contract With Voters for the 2016 Mobility Bond. The contract describes priorities for the corridor improvement projects and provides direction to the City Manager for how the 2016 Mobility Bond Program should be implemented. Click here to read City Council's Contract With Voters. 
Using the Contract With Voters, City of Austin staff developed a $1.4 billion Corridor Construction Program to be funded through a mix of funding sources, including the 2016 Mobility Bond, partnerships, leveraging (such as grants), and other coordination opportunities.
The Austin City Council adopted the Corridor Construction Program on April 26, 2018. 
The Corridor Construction Program is composed of corridor improvement projects across nine corridors. It is intended to address some of Austin’s biggest mobility challenges by:
  • Getting people moving by increasing the number of people who can travel through the corridors
  • Improving safety and reducing crashes through improvements to intersections and along the corridors
  • Expanding transportation options by improving the safety and connectivity of Austin’s sidewalk and bicycle network.

Construction Eligible Corridors
Since 2011, the City of Austin has been working with the community to develop Corridor Mobility Plans, which identify short-, medium-, and long-term mobility, safety, and connectivity improvements, for nine corridors. These nine corridors (depicted in orange on the map below) were identified in the Contract With Voters and listed on the 2016 Bond Election ballot as those that are eligible for construction through the 2016 Mobility Bond.
The Corridor Construction Program includes improvements along the full length of all nine corridors that will be funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond.
Preliminary Engineering and Design Corridors/Critical Arterials
The 2016 Mobility Bond Corridor Program also includes the development of five new Corridor Mobility Plans as well as preliminary engineering and design work on three critical arterials. The corridors and critical arterials on which the City of Austin will be doing preliminary engineering and design are in green on the map below.  Construction on these corridors is not funded through the 2016 Mobility Bond, but may be implemented as future funding sources become available.

Project Explorer

The Project Explorer is an interactive tool that provides access to information about projects and programs funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond Program. 
The 2016 Mobility Bond Program is just one source of funding for the City of Austin's Capital Improvement Program. In the future, you will be able to see information about projects funded by all sources, including the 2016 Mobility Bond.



Implementation Plan

Our goal is to complete the projects funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond in eight years. View our plan to accomplish that goal here or click on the slideshow below to see slides about the $482 million Corridor Mobility Program from a presentation provided to the Austin City Council in February 2017.
