South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor
The City of Austin is creating a Corridor Mobility Plan for the South Pleasant Valley Road 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 Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan are between Oltorf Street and Slaughter Lane.

South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan
The goal of the South Pleasant Valley Road 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 winter 2017 and is expected to conclude by the end of 2018. Mobility recommendations in the South Pleasant Valley Road 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.
Note: This is a conceptual map representing the Corridor Mobility Plan area. As part of the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan, the Corridor Mobility Team will explore opportunities to connect South Pleasant Valley in order to improve safety, mobility and connectivity for users, which is consistent with the 2025 Austin Metropolitan Area Transportation Plan. No recommended improvements or alignments for South Pleasant Valley Road have been determined at this time.
Second Phase of Public Engagement (Winter 2018)
As part of the South Pleasant Valley Road Corridor Mobility Plan development, the City of Austin sought input from the community through two rounds of public engagement.

- A public open house at Mendez Middle School, hosted in November 2018 (61 participants).
- A survey that was shared at events, online, and through the Corridor Program Office e-newsletter, open throughout December 2018 (58 participants).
- Ten presentations to AISD-area schools and community organizations.
