Thoughts on Burnet Road Corridor Improvements

In case you haven’t seen it, the plans for Burnet Road between 183 and the Mopac Frontage Road were released this week:

To say that these wildly differ from what the original proposed usage was is an understatement, and the proposed design completely ignores the long-term needs of the Burnet Road Corridor. There is no vision for transit, and this effectively places a 6-lane highway in the middle of what Austin likes to call it’s second downtown.

I would propose that we make a statement on this, and use that statement to point out that this stretch of road is identified as a transit corridor, encourage them to use recommendations from the NACTO Guildelines for Transit Corridors

What are some key parts of the latest Burnet Road plans that fall short of the NACTO guidelines or that changed from the original plans? Perhaps we could craft a resolution that urges city officials to remedy those shortcomings.
