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.
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 occurred throughout Spring 2018. You can view a comprehensive summary of that phase of engagement here. Public engagement events that took place during the first phase include:
- A pop-up meeting at Jo's Coffee (1300 S. Congress Avenue), hosted in February 2018 (~20 participants).
- A survey that was shared at events, online, and through the Corridor Program Office e-newsletter, open from early February 2018 through April 2018 (314 participants).
