Virtual Public Meeting – MoPac South Environmental Study


The meeting materials will be posted to at the date and time listed below.


The virtual public meeting will begin Monday, Nov. 22, 2021, by 5 p.m.


The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to receive public comment on the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority and TxDOT’s proposed plan to improve MoPac Expressway from Cesar Chavez Street to Slaughter Lane in Travis County, Texas by adding one-to-two express lanes in each direction.

The virtual meeting will consist of meeting materials for view and download, as well as both audio and visual components and an opportunity to comment. Comments must be received or postmarked on or before Friday, Jan. 7, 2022, to be a part of the official meeting record.

If you need additional information, please call (512) 342-3299 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday to ask questions about the project and access project materials at any time during the project development process.


The Mobility Authority and TxDOT are proposing to add one-to-two express lanes along approximately eight miles of the south MoPac Expressway from Cesar Chavez Street to Slaughter Lane in Austin, Travis County, Texas. The Mobility Authority and TxDOT launched the environmental study in 2013 to identify a mobility solution to this stretch of congested highway that improves mobility for drivers, transit riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians in a manner that promotes environmental stewardship and sustainability. 

This virtual public meeting will share information on the same six express lane(s) operation configuration options that were initially presented for public review and comment in 2015 to re-engage the public as project efforts are resumed after an extended project hold.

Before a Recommended Preferred Alternative is identified, the Mobility Authority and TxDOT are requesting public comments.
