Featured Campaign – Protected Bike Infrastructure on Jollyville and Pond Springs Roads
The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) planning two new express lanes in the middle of US 183 North in northwest Austin. Bicycle projects often piggyback on roadway projects. Bike Austin is interested in seeing a continuous shared-use path along this roadway, especially because the area is well known for being dangerously disconnected for bicyclists and pedestrians. Currently in the plan are protected bike lanes on Jollyville and Pond Springs Road. Sign our petition to voice your support for these safety improvements. Also, participate by taking Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (CAMPO) survey about regional transportation plans.
