Need #2: Limited Ability to Increase Roadway Width

Population and employment growth continue to strain Austin’s transportation infrastructure. By the year 2040, the region’s population is expected to double. New roadway capacity will only grow by 15 percent*. In order to manage this growth, the region will need to make better use of transportation right-of-way. Project Connect is working to find ways to move more people in a limited amount of space.

*According to the Capital Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) 2040 Regional Transportation Plan
