LAMPTO seeking  public input

The Lakeway Area Metropolitan Transit Planning Organization is asking for public comment on the West Andrew Johnson Highway Corridor Study, while also holding a public meeting this week.

The goal of the study is to identify sustainable short and long-term enhancements to the corridor that provide a multitude of transportation options for current and future trends, while maintaining quality of life and encouraging economic growth.

The study corridor has been reviewed and evaluated for opportunities to improve safety, vehicular capacity, vehicles accessing the roadway from side streets and driveways and multimodal opportunities.

For analysis purposes, the study corridor has been divided into 3 different segments, based on existing land uses, current and future development opportunities and roadway characteristics:

• Segment 1 – Western Project Limits (in Jefferson County) to Commerce Boulevard (±1.7 miles)

• Segment 2 – Commerce Boulevard to East of N. Sugar Hollow Road (±4.0 miles)

• Segment 3 – East of N. Sugar Hollow Road to Walters Drive / W. Morris Boulevard (±1.5 miles)

As a part of the corridor study a virtual public meeting will be held on Wednesday April 14 between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. using the video platform ZOOM.

The purpose of this meeting is to bring awareness and solicit public input on study recommendations.
