Here are the 2016 mobility bond projects that around the corner this year

What We Reported


The city started construction last summer on the first projects funded through the 2016 mobility bond. These projects were mostly sidewalks and related to Safe Routes to School.

The Latest


Staffers are working on the draft Corridor Construction Plan that will outline improvements planned for corridors using $482 million in bond funds, said Mike Trimble, director of the Corridor Program Office. Staffers also unveiled the 2018 Local Mobility Annual Plan that is a look ahead at what projects may be started in 2018, including sidewalks, bikeways and trails.

What’s Next


The draft corridor plan will be released to the public in late February for comment before heading to Austin City Council for approval in March. After approval, Trimble said staffers will complete the design work for improvements. Also in 2018 work will continue on sidewalk, bicycle, trail and Safe Routes to School projects.
