According to a recent letter from the Mopac Intersections Project Team, congestion and traffic volumes at the intersections have increased at accelerated rates, causing difficulty for motorists traveling through the area.
The improvement project includes construction of two main lanes in each direction on MoPac underneath Slaughter Lane and La Crosse Avenue, intersection improvements at both streets, and improving pedestrian and bicycle facilities by adding features such as a shared-use path on the west side of MoPac from Slaughter Lane to La Crosse Avenue.
TxDOT invites the public to visit with team members from Webber, the group hired for construction, to learn more about the project. Work on the project is scheduled to begin this month.
The informal gathering will take place at the Circle C Community Center located at 7817 La Crosse Ave., Austin, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 12. Residents are encouraged to stop by at their convenience.
