Barton Springs Rd. Bridge Community Meeting - Thursday, March 2 from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Public invited to learn more about project to address existing bridge

The public is invited to learn more about the City's efforts to address the existing bridge over Barton Springs Rd. near Zilker Park, and provide input to the project team. 

The City of Austin is planning for improvements to Barton Springs Road Bridge to provide mobility enhancements for all users. Many of its features are functionally obsolete and require rehabilitation or replacement to ensure safety and longevity.

In November 2020, Austin voters approved $102 million for major infrastructure projects, with the possibility of allocating a portion of that funding to address the Barton Springs Road Bridge. The project is currently funded for completion of engineering and design; future funding for construction would need to be identified.  

Community Open House:

Date: Thursday, March 2, 2023
Time: 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. (drop by anytime) 
Location: McBeth Recreation Center, 2401 Columbus Dr, Austin, TX 78746

For those unable to attend, all open house materials will be available via a virtual public meeting on the project website starting March 2 until March 16, including an online comment form.

The project team provided an update to the Mayor and City Council via memo  last fall, as well as an update to the City Council Mobility Committee.
