The Public Works Department Sidewalk Program is responsible for installing miles of sidewalks in Austin for transportation and recreational use. The Americans with Disabilities Act is a driving factor in making sure that the right-of-way along Austin's streets are safe and accessible for all.

Illustration of shared street

The City is looking for ways to build safer places to walk in less time and at a lower cost through a concept called Shared Streets. The goal is to make some residential streets comfortable for in-street walking and rolling. Learn more and give feedback on if you want to see Austin invest in more Shared Streets.
