South Pleasant Valley Road  Corridor Mobility Plan

In June 2020, the City of Austin published the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan. A Corridor Mobility Plan is also known as a preliminary engineering report, and it provides recommendations on how to improve safety, mobility and connectivity along a roadway. Recommendations provided in Corridor Mobility Plans are informed by the community, roadway data and transportation experts.
The 2016 Mobility Bond funded the development of five new Corridor Mobility Plans, and the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan is the next to be completed and published through the bond funds as part of the Corridor Mobility Program. As additional funding is identified, the roadway improvements recommended in the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan will continue through the project development process (design phase → bidding → construction).
Austin Transportation is currently working to bring some near-term improvements to South Pleasant Valley that were recommended by the roadway's Corridor Mobility Plan.  Click here to learn more.


South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan

The goal of the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan was to make project recommendations that would enhance mobility, connectivity, and safety for all users—including people who drive, walk, bike, and take transit.
Development of the plan kicked off in winter 2017 and concluded in 2020. Mobility recommendations in the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan will be funded for design and construction as future funding sources become available. 
The limits of the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan are between Oltorf Street and Slaughter Lane.
