Over the next 18 months, we'll be developing an Infrastructure Plan to identify and prioritize sidewalk and bicycle route improvements near 131 public elementary and middle schools in the City of Austin. The goal of the Infrastructure Plan is to create safer options for students to get to and from school. This project is made possible by the 2016 Mobility Bond, which included $27.5M for improvements to sidewalks, streets, bikeways and trails that improve safety and access to school for Austin children.
This is truly a community effort. We want input from school officials, parents, guardians, and students on how to best prioritize safety solutions. Community Workships will be held in each Council District so we can hear directly from residents. You can also participate online using our innovative WikiMaps tool, available in English and Spanish.
