Improvements include installation or rehabilitation/replacement of curb ramps, sidewalks, curbs, driveway aprons and related construction to conform with the Department of Justice guidance and ADA requirements.
The funding is divided evenly among the ten City Council Districts, with each district receiving $2.75 million. The Safe Routes to School Program is a partnership with local school districts to address safety concerns of routes to school and encourage children and families to bike or walk to school.
Improvements include separated and/or protected bicycle facilities, bicycle detection and signal equipment, and other on-street bicycle facilities, such as bike lanes. Bikeways funded through the bond program have a transportation and mobility purpose.
The Urban Trail Network is a citywide network of non-motorized, multi-use pathways. Projects may include design and construction of various trail connections. Urban Trails funded through the bond program have a transportation and mobility purpose.
Projects include implementation of fatality reduction strategies for projects listed on the Top Crash Location Intersection Priorities Improvement List. Improvements include intersection reconfiguration, median modification, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and traffic and pedestrian signals.

Funding for the following substandard streets/capital renewal: Fallwell Lane, William Cannon Railroad Overpass, FM 1626, Cooper Lane, Ross Road, Circle S Road, Rutledge Spur, Davis Lane, Latta Drive/Brush Country, Johnny Morris Road, and Brodie Lane.
Corridor Improvement Projects: $482 million
Funding for Corridor Improvements is being invested in the implementation of Corridor Mobility Reports, which identify short-, medium-, and long-term transportation improvements on many Austin corridors. While we work to get webpages set up with more information,check out the Austin Transportation Department's Corridor Mobility Program website. Corridors included in the 2016 Mobility Bond are:
North Lamar Boulevard from US Hwy 183 to Howard Lane (report complete)
