The city of Austin has seven Corridor Improvement Programs for updating major roadways, but none of which are located west of MoPac or in Northwest Austin.
That is why the Northwest Austin Coalition, which represents neighborhoods west of MoPac and north of RM 2222, wants to jump-start planning efforts for studying improvements to Anderson Mill Road between RM 620 and US 183, organizer Jimmy Flannigan said. NWAC chose Anderson Mill Road because it is the only major roadway in Northwest Austin not managed by the Texas Department of Transportation.
“This is about starting off what we need to be doing, what other parts of town have been doing for years and years and years,” Flannigan said during a June 29 NWAC meeting. “It’s got to be broad, and we need to make sure every neighborhood has a say.”
