According to a Sept. 11 announcement by the Austin Corridor Program Office, crews will be working to locate a storm drain under the pavement in an effort to map utilities along the Slaughter corridor.
The mapping is being conducted to prepare for overall corridor improvements, which, according to the city, could begin in the spring near Escarpment. Specific future improvements at the intersection will include new turn lanes, updated traffic signals, sidewalk ramps and improved crosswalks.
Corridor improvements are funded through the city’s 2016 mobility bond with $74 million in work scheduled through 2024 along Slaughter. The corridor office began surveying the roadway this summer in anticipation of the future roadwork.
