Manchaca Road Corridor
The City of Austin is creating a Corridor Mobility Plan for the Manchaca Road corridor, funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond. A Corridor Mobility Plan is a preliminary engineering report with recommendations to improve safety, mobility, and connectivity. The limits of the Manchaca Road Corridor Mobility Plan are between South Lamar Boulevard and FM 1626.
Manchaca Road Corridor Mobility Plan
The goal of the Manchaca Road Corridor Mobility Plan is to make recommendations that will enhance mobility, connectivity, and safety for all users—including people who drive, walk, bike, and take transit.
Development of the plan kicked off in fall 2017 and is expected to conclude by the end of 2018. Mobility recommendations in the Manchaca Road Corridor Mobility Plan will not be funded for construction through the 2016 Mobility Bond, but may be funded for design and construction as future funding sources become available.

Second Phase of Public Engagement (Spring/Summer 2018)
As part of the Manchaca Road Corridor Mobility Plan development, the City of Austin will seek input from the community through two rounds of public engagement. The second round—during which the public is invited to look at recommended improvements to the roadway—is occurring right now. To get involved, view preliminary mobility recommendations and tell us what you think about them. If you'd like to request a presentation for your organization about the Manchaca Corridor Mobility Plan, contact Mandy McClendon at Corridors@AustinTexas.gov or 512-974-7899.
Some public engagement events have already taken place during our second phase of engagement, including:
- A pop-up meeting at Half Price Books, hosted in May 2018 (23 participants).
First Phase of Public Engagement (Winter 2017)
The first portion of public engagement occurred throughout Winter 2017-Spring 2018. You can view a comprehensive summary of that phase of engagement here. Events that took place during phase one include:
- A pop-up meeting at Sprouts Farmers Market, hosted in November 2017 (50 participants).
- A forum for business owners at Austin Community College: South Austin Campus, hosted in December 2017 (6 participants).
- A survey that was shared at events, online, and through the Corridor Program Office e-newsletter, open from late November 2017 through early February 2018 (581 participants).
