Austin Street Design Guide: Public Launch
Tuesday, June 20, 2017
One Texas Center, Room 325
The Austin Street Design Guide is a modern guide for street design that considers street function, land use context, green infrastructure and all transportation modes. The guide contains street cross-sections and serves as a precursor to updates to the City’s Transportation Criteria Manual, the how-to manual for transportation-related requirements in the Land Development Code.
The City will pilot these street designs through capital projects as well as the development process through the end of 2017 in coordination with the development of the Austin Strategic Mobility Plan and CodeNEXT. The Austin Strategic Mobility Plan, CodeNEXT and the Transportation Criteria Manual update are expected to be complete in 2018.
