City Hosting Series of "Pop-In" Meetings on 2016 Mobility Bond Corridors

This City of Austin is hosting a series of educational "pop-in meetings," starting today and going through October, on each of the corridors eligible for construction funding as part of the 2016 Mobility Bond Corridor Program.

The 2016 Mobility Bond dedicates $482 million to corridor improvement projects.

Today's "pop-in" is on Airport Boulevard at Walgreens, 1144 Airport Boulevard, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The pop-in events consist of an information table set up in high foot-traffic locations, where people can drop by at their convenience to learn more about the Corridor Mobility Program, talk with team members about the Corridor Mobility Plans, and provide feedback and ask questions.

Staff at the "pop-in" events will not be available for interviews. Media is invited to attend the pop-in at any point today or during another event, but should contact Sara Behunek, Corridor Program Office Communications Manager, to arrange for an interview.
