Austin City Council approves mobility plan that includes urban rail

Most Austinites agree, traffic is a problem that needs to be addressed. The City Council is working to do just that, with an item on its agenda Thursday that would approve a strategic mobility plan.  Austin's traffic is ranked as the fourth worst in the United States. To put that in perspective, it's a little worse than New York City, but a little better than San Francisco.

Thursday's item is to approve a strategic mobility plan that would focus on building additional roads and make way for phase one of the project connect urban rail line. That line has been subject to a lot of criticism, and the plan on the agenda calls for a route from the East Riverside Corridor through downtown, the Capitol complex and University of Texas and Austin Community College campuses.
