There’s lots of talk about Prop 1 and the transportation improvement plan. One of the most important improvements is in the Southwest part of Austin in Oak Hill.
Not quite sure what it is? Check out this video from City of Austin to get a quick overview of Prop 1 and everything it covers.
Get Austin Moving ran an article this past Wed discussing the major improvements of Prop 1.
- Relief from the congestion commuters battle at the “Y” intersection in Oak Hill.
- Design and construction of sidewalks with trees, crosswalks and bicycle lanes along the East Riverside Drive corridor between Interstate 35 and Ben White Boulevard.
- Extension of the Lady Bird Lake hike-and-bike trail 1.1 miles from just east of the Congress Avenue Bridge to Lakeshore Park.
The area in Oak Hill has been in need of some major work so I’m glad this improvement might actually happen. Oak Hill is a great area of town but it’s been hard for businesses to get established there because of the congestion issues. Once this improvement happens, it will be a great area to consider office space in southwest Austin.
If any of these improvements interests you well then be sure to vote! Help support making Austin a better place to live and do business.
Have a spooky Halloween weekend everyone!
