AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin City Council adopted the Austin Strategic Mobility Plan on Thursday, putting in place a new, comprehensive transportation plan for the city.
The ASMP is Austin’s first locally focused transportation plan and aims to improve current city travel and plan for the city’s long-term transportation future. The plan hopes to heas traffic, take an inventory of existing street conditions and pinpoint areas of the city that need work.
“The Austin Strategic Mobility Plan is truly a major milestone for Austin’s mobility portfolio,” said Robert Spillar, P.E., Austin Transportation Director. “The plan responds to Council’s strategic direction to solve mobility issues by addressing the multimodal needs of our community, offering our residents and visitors new, affordable opportunities to travel through and around our city.”
