Construction of sidewalks near Burnet Road and Braker Lane are complete, according to the city of Austin’s corridor program office.
The improvements were of particular concern because of the expected increase in pedestrians in the area walking to nearby Q2 Stadium on Austin FC game days, according to an Aug. 6 newsletter sent by the corridor program office. The office oversees projects funded by a 2016 mobility bond.
New sidewalks have been placed on the east side of Burnet Road from Braker Lane to just north of Kramer Lane. The city of Austin Public Works Department oversaw the work, according to the newsletter.
Moving pedestrian traffic in and around the stadium is needed because of limited on-site parking at Q2 Stadium.
