Where Covington Middle School, Cafeteria

Austin, TX 78749
When: Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013
5 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Purpose: The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in cooperation with the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) invites you to an open house  to learn more about the study, talk with project staff and give input on project alternative concepts to the environmental study for US 290/SH 71 West corridor between Mopac and RM 1826. There will be no formal presentation so citizens can come and go at their convenience.
Description: The intersection of US 290 and SH 71 in Oak Hill serves as a key route between Central Austin and fast-growing suburban and rural communities. US 290 is one of Texas’ most congested highway corridors with drivers wasting more than a half-million hours per year stuck in traffic.

Current efforts are being implemented to improve five US 290 intersections (Joe Tanner, William Cannon, SH 71, Convict Hill and RM 1826). Proposed intersection improvements will help reduce traffic delays for the next few years. However, more work is needed to address the mobility needs twenty years into the future.
