William Cannon Drive Corridor
Mobility, safety and connectivity improvements are coming to William Cannon Drive between Southwest Parkway and McKinney Falls Parkway. As proposed, the City of Austin anticipates investing approximately $46.6 million from the 2016 Mobility Bond on the improvements, which are included in the Corridor Construction Program, adopted by Austin City Council. The projects are expected to reduce vehicular delay, improve effectiveness of transit, as well as create continuous ADA-compliant sidewalks and continuous bicycle facilities along the length of the corridor.
The preliminary engineering phase of work began in April 2018. New information has been collected and is being used to refine the design of the corridor improvements, associated cost estimates, and implementation timelines.
Additional project development, design and engineering is needed prior to construction. During the full design phase of work we will:
- Conduct additional outreach to neighborhoods, businesses, property owners and the broader community
- Pursue leveraging and partnership opportunities
- Develop strategies to minimize impacts from proposed improvements and construction
- Complete environmental investigations and documentation
- Obtain permits, develop traffic management plans, coordinate utility relocations and purchase right-of-way
- Prepare construction projects for procurement
- Work with community on placemaking opportunities

Learn about the improvements planned for William Cannon Drive corridor
On Saturday, August 25, 2018, we hosted an open house meeting from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Langford Elementary School (2206 Blue Meadow Drive, Austin Texas, 78744.) At the meeting, we provided information about planned improvements for William Cannon Drive and received community feedback.
Below are links to the information materials that were shared at the meeting.
Corridor improvements are informed by the community’s needs and input. Community engagement played a critical role in developing the Corridor Construction Program and the William Cannon Corridor Mobility Plan, and additional public engagement was conducted during the preliminary engineering phase of work.
