As part of its Corridor Construction Program, the city of Austin is hosting an open house Sept. 6 for residents to learn more about some of the improvements being designed.

The come-and-go meeting is from 5-8 p.m. at St. John’s United Methodist Church, 2140 Allandale Road, Austin. Members of the city’s project team will answer any questions and discuss the projects that will be designed to reduce delays and crashes; improve transit; and add continuous sidewalks and bicycle facilities between Koenig Lane and MoPac.

Corridorwide improvements will also include rehabbing pavement, improving intersections, replacing traffic signals, said Sara Behunek, communications manager for the city’s Corridor Program Office.

Burnet Road is receiving about $53.2 million in funding for improvements from the $720 million 2016 Mobility Bond, which earmarks $482 million for nine corridors citywide.

In April, Austin City Council adopted the Corridor Construction Program that outlines improvements on the nine roadways based on preliminary engineering work.

The city is now designing these improvements, an effort that will take 12-36 months, according to the city. Construction on projects will take place in 2012-24.

As part of the program, the city started fieldwork on Burnet Road in late July to gather more information on the corridor, including conducting topographic, boundary and tree surveys as well as taking samples of the pavement, soil and rocks.

For residents unable to attend the Sept. 6 open house, all materials will be posted online at
