CAMPO and the City of Georgetown are conducting the Austin Avenue Corridor Study to consider transportation needs and develop a vision and recommendations for areas between Southeast Inner Loop and Northeast Inner Loop. The study will include transportation recommendations that consider various transportation modes such as driving, walking, and biking, and also consider land use recommendations and placemaking opportunities.
Along with the transportation recommendations, the study will build upon existing local and regional plans, guide recommendations for the City’s Downtown Master Plan Update and Future Mobility Plan, and be incorporated into CAMPO’s Long-range Regional Transportation Plan.
Study Goals and Objectives
- Further the goals and priorities of local and regional plans
- Enhance multimodal movement, operations, and safety
- Enhance the corridor character and pedestrian realm experience
- Support economic development along the corridor
Community input is a key part of this study. Community input and commenting opportunities will be available throughout the study, including three formal public comment periods. The Study was introduced at the City of Georgetown’s State of the City event in early 2023, and public input opportunities included the City’s Red Poppy Festival in Spring 2023, the Gather Round Georgetown Project Expo in August 2023, small group meeting with key stakeholders, and at a project expo during the Art Stroll in October 2023. A third public meeting is planned for early 2024. View the material shared at the Art Stroll in October 2023.
