North University-Heritage-Rosedale Neighborhood Bikeways

The Austin Transportation Department (ATD) is evaluating local streets in Central Austin neighborhoods as a network of proposed neighborhood bikeways.
These routes were selected for the connectivity they can provide in the All Ages and Abilities Bicycle Network. The characteristics of these local streets are naturally more compatible to sharing the roadway, including narrower street widths and naturally lower motor vehicle speeds and volumes. 
Funding for this project is available from the 2016 Mobility Bond Bikeways and Sidewalks program.

In response to community feedback, the project team has updated the design proposal. You can walk through the updated proposal by visiting our virtual open house
The project is evaluating two options to connect the Shoal Creek Trail on W 31st Street using a shared use path. The design team is asking for community input to finalize a preferred design in this area, as well as input on the overall updated design proposal.
Please share input here on the updated project design by Sunday, December 20, 2020.

January 2020
ATD hosted an open house for community members to review preliminary designs and learn more about the project on Thursday, January 30, 2020 at Bryker Woods Elementary. All materials presented at the open house are available below.
The comment period for this project closed on Sunday, March 1, 2020. 
Proposed Changes
  • Routing and navigation improvements
  • Managing vehicle speeds and volumes
  • Improvements for crossing major streets for people walking or bicycling
  • Shoal Creek Trail connection

Neighborhood Bikeways
Neighborhood bikeways are local streets where motor vehicle traffic speeds and volumes are kept low to make it safer and more comfortable to ride a bicycle, walk, and play.
Neighborhood bikeways enhance local streets by:
  • Adding pavement markings (“sharrows”) to alert people driving cars to expect people riding bicycles in the street and help guide people riding bicycles along the bikeway route
  • Improving crossings of major streets
  • Adding way-finding signage to guide people to local and regional destinations
  • Managing vehicle speeds and volumes
