What is the Downtown Austin Project Coordination Zone (DAPCZ)?

The DAPCZ encompasses downtown proper. Per Ordinance 14-11-167, activities within this zone must coordinate with one another before construction can begin.

What is the DAPCZ meeting? Why is it important?

The DAPCZ meeting is a monthly gathering run by Right of Way Management, attended by City, utility, and private project representatives.  The meetings allow neighboring projects to coordinate via construction phasing, sharing of work zones, joint trenching, and allowing for regular communication with other project managers and area stakeholders.

DAPCZ meeting attendance is required if a project falls within the DAPCZ boundaries and meets the one of the following conditions:
