The City of Austin's Corridor Program Office (CPO) is nearing construction on many of the first of several Corridor Construction Program projects! While we've completed some smaller projects that addressed critical safety and mobility needs, we are entering an exciting time for large construction projects on major corridors.

We are working closely with the Small and Minority Business Resources Department (SMBR) to provide valuable information to potential contractors as we enter the construction phase of the Corridor Mobility Program.

Share Your Input on Walking and Biking in MoPac/Southwest Parkway Neighborhoods
Due to other completed, planned, and potential projects to add connectivity in the area, the YBC (Y at Oak Hill) Trail project is currently on hold. While the Austin Public Works Urban Trails Program reexamines options for YBC Trail, the program is looking at other ways to make it easier and safer to walk and bike in neighborhoods along MoPac and Southwest Parkway. Funding is not currently identified for these smaller improvements, but your input can help us learn where improvements are most needed and move forward quickly, once funding is identified. Take this survey through Friday, September 4 to share what you’d like to see!
