TxDOT hosts open houses focused on 290 West Mobility and Safety between Austin and Dripping Springs

The Texas Department of Transportation will host two open houses to gather input from the community regarding safety and mobility needs along US 290 from RM 1826 in Austin to RM 12 in Dripping Springs. Identical open houses will be held at each end of the study area.

Open house #1:

Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019, from 5 - 7 p.m.

No formal presentation will be given and attendees can come and go at their convenience. Study team members will be available to answer questions and receive input from the public. Those unable to attend the meeting in person can review materials online.

Individuals may email comments to US290W@gmail.com or mail in their comments to: Alem Workie, TxDOT Austin District, P.O. Box 15426, Austin, TX 78761. For more information on the project, visit www.txdot.gov and enter the keywords “US 290 from Oak Hill.” To be included in the public record, all comments must be received by Monday, Oct. 21, 2019.

These open houses launch the US 290 from Oak Hill to Dripping Springs Planning and Feasibility Study. The purpose of this study is to identify long-term safety and mobility solutions for the US 290 corridor.

An online survey is also available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/US290W. The survey will remain open until Monday, Oct. 21, 2019.
