The proposed transportation master plan will be used to outline future transportation-related needs in Dripping Springs, triggered by population growth and aging infrastructure. Goals include identifying transportation deficiencies, improving the overall connectivity of roadways, identifying the needed right of way for future projects and evaluating funding options, according to the city.
During the virtual event, city staff will address feedback it has received through previous open houses, according to a news release by the city.
A first public hearing for the master plan was held in January 2019. Feedback gathered included residents asking to connect more of the city’s roads, which would provide more options and ways to bypass W. Hwy. 290 through downtown Dripping Springs, according to the city. In December, the city hosted an additional virtual presentation and open house with residents leaving feedback through an online portal throughout the month.
City staff will also present recommendations for the city’s thoroughfare and multimodal plan maps and will display updated maps of proposed roadways and pedestrian accommodations, which include more than 25 options for new streets and major arterial roads.
