Longhorn Dam Multimodal Improvements 

In 2018, the City of Austin Public Works Department in partnership with Austin Transportation Department began work on a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) to evaluate the possibility of a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge over Lady Bird Lake, as well as a review of possible interim improvements to the existing bridge. 
Funding for interim improvements is available from the 2016 Mobility Bond. Funding to fully design and construct a new bridge will still need to be identified.
There will be a total of three public meetings for the project. The project team will present a final recommendation for one bridge alignment and interim improvements at a third meeting in late 2019.

Public Engagement
Public Meeting 1 - Nov 13, 2018
In fall 2018, the project team held an initial public meeting and released an online survey to collect feedback on needs and potential interim improvements. Over 550 responses were received and analyzed.

Public Meeting 2 - June 10, 2019 
Input received from the community in November and December 2018 was evaluated to develop alternatives for public review. At the second public meeting, the project team presented and collected public feedback on five alternatives as well as potential interim improvements to the existing bridge.
A survey was available from June 10 to July 10 for feedback on the five alternatives and potential interim improvements. Survey results are being evaluated by staff.
