Improving Austin’s East Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd./FM969 Corridor
ATG design engineers are working with the City of Austin to improve safety, mobility, and multimodal connectivity along the East Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard/FM 969 Corridor.
The City of Austin selected ATG to develop safety, mobility, and connectivity improvements along East Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard/FM 969 Corridor Project from US 183 to Decker Lane. With funding for Austin’s current Corridor Construction Program, ATG is developing prioritized, interim improvements to provide near-term benefit. ATG also designed ultimate improvements to provide ongoing project implementation program along the roadway.
Interim improvements include the design and construction of 8 ft shared-use paths on each side of the street, signage and striping, drainage, as well as street reconstruction and widening of a major intersection. Ultimate improvements include the complete design and reconstruction of the corridor widening roadway from 4-lanes with a center turn-lane to 6-lanes with a raised median, and shared-use paths in both directions.
