AUSTIN (KXAN) — Five options were presented for the Longhorn Dam bridge replacement project, and after months of public input, the final decision aligned with what the people wanted.
The wishbone-style that connects to the shore at three points was the choice officials made at an open house Tuesday night. It was an overwhelming public favorite with 41 percent listing the option as their top preference.
Of the 1,831 responses for the option, 56 percent of them were “very comfortable” with Option B. Option A, a bridge that connects the dam to the peninsula, received the second-highest approval rating.
