What is proposed for construction
In Spring 2018, the Austin City Council approved a Corridor Construction Program that includes mobility, safety, and connectivity improvements on South Lamar Boulevard to accommodate multiple modes of transportation, including driving, walking, biking, and taking transit.
These projects are expected to:
- reduce vehicular delay and crashes
- improve the effectiveness of transit
- create continuous ADA-compliant sidewalks along the entire length of the corridor
- create continuous bicycle facilities along the entire length of the corridor.

South Lamar Boulevard Corridor Mobility Plan
Corridor Mobility Plans were used as the basis for development of the Corridor Construction Program. The City of Austin finalized a Corridor Mobility Plan in April 2016 for South Lamar Boulevard from Riverside Drive to US 290 West.
The plan recommends short and long-term improvements that focus on ways to improve safety and accessibility along the corridor, while also improving mobility for everyone — people who drive, walk, bike, and take transit.
