North Lamar Corridor Transportation Plans 

There are a number of transportation plans in the works that affect the North Lamar Corridor directly, as well as plans that could potentially affect the corridor in the future: 

  • Austin City Council recently approved an amendment to an Austin Transportation Department manual to ensure a more consistent relationship between street design and speed limits. 

  • Austin City Council recently approved safety zone pilots, or neighborhood streets where the city will test out a 25 mph speed limit. Specific streets have not yet been assigned to the pilot program​, but we will likely see reduced speed limits for N. Lamar soon.

  • Safety improvements at N. Lamar, both Rundberg and Rutland intersection are underway and to be completed by February 2017

    ​ (still underway at time of newsletter print).​
  • Construction starts on N. Lamar (US Hwy 183 to Parmer Ln.) for $1.2M Sidewalk Grant in the Spring of 2017. 

  • The Quarter Cent Funds ($1.9M per district) and 2012 $15M Transportation Bond Funds (shared between N. Lamar/Burnet Rd.) will focus on safety improvements, such as sidewalk and pedestrian hybrid beacon additions, and will be completed within the next two years. 

  • The November 2016 Mobility Bond approved $18 million for N. Lamar corridor. A corridor consultant with begin evaluating all corridors in 2017 to determine which corridor plans will start first.
