|Purpose:||The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will host an Open House this April for proposed improvements to MoPac between Cesar Chavez Street and Slaughter Lane. Join us to discuss the purpose and need of the project, preliminary alternatives being developed, and draft evaluation criteria.
The open house will be held at Barton Creek Mall on the 1st floor on the south end of the mall near JC Penney, Starbucks and AMC Theater. Closest mall entrances are located on the west side for the AMC Theater and the east side for JC Penney. If you go through the east side entrance near JC Penney, take the escalator, elevator or stairs down to the ground floor to the open house site. A map to the open house location can be found below in "downloads" or at MoPacSouth.
At the open house, project team members will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about the preliminary alternatives. No formal presentation will be given. Attendees are invited to come and go at their convenience.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, but would like to learn more about the project or submit a question or comment, please visit our virtual open house from April 29 through May 9, 2014.

|Description:||The MoPac corridor south of Lady Bird Lake is a vital artery for Austin commuters and neighbors, as well as visitors to our region. Constructed between 1975 and 1992 as a four to six-lane divided highway, it attracts up to 150,000 cars and trucks per day. Over time, population growth and development have increased and are negatively impacting the quality of life for corridor travelers.
The Mobility Authority and TxDOT are developing the environmental study and are working with the City of Austin, Capital Metro and other local partners to improve safety and mobility for drivers, transit riders, bicyclists and pedestrians in a manner that promotes environmental stewardship and sustainability.
