Learn about William Cannon Drive's Planned Improvements

We are seeking feedback on mobility, safety and connectivity improvements to be constructed on William Cannon Drive. These improvements are in design.
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 got community feedback that will help refine the design of the improvements.
