South Congress Avenue Corridor

Note: In order to allow for additional coordination with CapMetro’s Project Connect Long-Term Vision Plan, the South Congress Avenue Corridor Mobility Plan is currently on hold. 
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.
The timeline for development of the South Congress Avenue Corridor Mobility Plan originally indicated that additional public outreach would take place during Fall 2018, with the Corridor Mobility Plan recommendations finalized by Winter 2018. This timeline has changed.
In order to allow for additional coordination with CapMetro’s Project Connect Long-Term Vision Plan, the South Congress Avenue Corridor Mobility Plan is currently on hold. 
It’s anticipated that the Plan will be revisited in early 2020, but that is subject to change based on ongoing coordination efforts.
