City of Austin
Halff led the design of a 6.5-mile urban arterial through the City of Austin as part of the City’s 2016 Mobility Bond.
The overall project goal is to address some of Austin’s biggest mobility challenges by increasing the number of people who can travel through the corridor, expanding transportation options by improving the safety and connectivity of Austin’s current sidewalk and bicycle networks, as well as improving safety through various intersection improvements throughout the corridor.
An extensive access management analysis and mobility plan were executed. Corridor improvements include approximately 6.5 miles of road rehabilitation, geometric improvements, shared-use paths, protected and unprotected bike lanes, sidewalks, on-street parking, curb and gutter, drainage and storm sewer, pedestrian hybrid beacons and pedestrian bridges over Boggy Creek.
Halff met with the Capital Metro Transportation Authority throughout the process to discuss ways to facilitate transit efficiency and operability. This led to the relocation of many existing bus stops to the far side of their associated intersections and the incorporation of detailed connection points to help maintain the reliable timeliness of the Capital Metro route.
The full corridor complied with the Americans with Disabilities Act to ensure it was a corridor for all ages and mobilities.
