Many are talking about the new Proposition 1, which is whether the city will receive a $720 million mobility bond that supposedly will help improve Austin’s traffic conditions and decrease the number of accidents on the road. However, some aren’t quite sure what that entails. According Austin Mayor Steve Adler, it will improve the following:
- Dangerous intersections and corridors which includes Martin Luther King Boulevard and Airport Boulevard as well as Cesar Chaves Street and North I-35.
- Sidewalk plans
- Fatality reduction strategies
- Safer school routes
- Building medians in place of turning lanes
However, many are skeptical on whether the plan will in fact cost more money with no guarantee these road “improvements” will work.
