William Cannon Drive Corridor

The City of Austin is developing a Corridor Mobility Plan for William Cannon Drive between Southwest Parkway and McKinney Falls Parkway. The Corridor Mobility Plan will recommend improvements to enhance mobility, connectivity, and safety for all users—including people who drive, walk, bike, and take transit.

Development of the plan began in spring 2017 and is expected to conclude in early 2018. Mobility recommendations developed as part of the William Cannon Drive Corridor Mobility Plan have been prioritized for design and construction as part of the Corridor Construction Program funded in part by the 2016 Mobility Bond.


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 William Cannon Drive from Southwest Parkway to McKinney Falls Parkway.
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.

We are now refining the recommendations based on feedback and additional analysis for the completed William Cannon Drive Corridor Mobility Plan, which is anticipated be finalized in early 2018. Click here to sign up for updates about the process.

How the recommendations are developed

Many factors are being considered to develop the recommendations for mobility improvements in the William Cannon Drive Corridor Mobility Plan. What is available now are preliminary recommendations. Feedback provided will be considered as the plan is completed.

Public Input

The public provided input and feedback at two separate points during development of the Corridor Mobility Plan. In spring 2017, the community provided input on what improvements they would like to see on William Cannon Drive. In fall 2017, the public provided feedback on preliminary recommendations to improve mobility, safety, and connectivity along the roadway.  Click here to view the results of input received on William Cannon Drive in both phases of public engagement.
