South Congress Avenue Corridor
The City of Austin is creating a Corridor Mobility Plan for the South Congress Avenue 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 South Congress Avenue Corridor Mobility Plan are between the south shore of Lady Bird Lake and Slaughter Lane.

South Congress Avenue Corridor Mobility Plan
The goal of the South Congress Avenue 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 South Congress Avenue 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.
Take our survey to tell us more about the kind of potential improvements you'd like to see along South Congress Avenue. The survey will close at the end of March 2018.
As part of the South Congress Avenue Corridor Mobility Plan development, the City of Austin will seek input from the community through two rounds of public engagement. The first portion of public engagement is occurring throughout Spring 2018. Some public engagement events have already taken place, including:
- A pop-up meeting at Jo's Coffee (1300 S. Congress Avenue), hosted in February 2018 (~20 participants).
Please join us at one of our upcoming public engagement events:
Public Open House Meeting
Date: Tuesday, February 27th
Time: 5 - 8 p.m. (stop by anytime!)
Location: Fulmore Middle School (201 E. Mary St.)
Description: Drop in our Public Open House meeting on February 27th to speak with the Corridor Mobility Team, to see large maps of the Corridor Mobility Plan area, to fill out a brief survey, and to provide detailed feedback about potential mobility improvements you'd like to see along South Congress Avenue.
Anticipated Project Timeline
