Austin, TX 78749
When: Thursday, Oct. 29, 2015
4:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Purpose: Traffic congestion in Oak Hill is a serious problem and negatively impacts mobility, safety and quality of life. Since October 2012, TxDOT and the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) have been working with stakeholders to provide meaningful traffic relief for Oak Hill.

At the sixth open house, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more and provide input on:
  • An updated look at Alternatives A and C designs, including artistic renderings of key intersections
  • The draft matrix for phase three of the alternative evaluation process
  • An update on designs and ideas for Context Sensitive Solutions
  • Recent water quality workshop information, including off-site regional water detention
Description: This is the sixth in a series of open house meetings since the study was launched in October 2012. TxDOT and the Mobility Authority remain committed to working closely with the community to identify the best possible solutions for addressing traffic congestion and increasing safety and mobility at the intersection of US 290 and SH 71 West through Oak Hill.

No formal presentation is planned; attendees are invited to come and go at their convenience. Project team members will be on hand to answer questions.

A concurrent virtual open house will be available between Oct. 29 and Nov. 9, 2015. Those who are unable to attend in person will be able to review open house materials and exhibits, as well as submit comments and questions.
