The District is developing a transportation/mobility master plan to integrate with existing federal, state, regional, county, and city transportation planning efforts. The plan includes dedicating Hillcroft as a “scenic parkway,” preserving its large median, and discouraging expansion through the surrounding residential area. The District also works with other governmental agencies to improve ingress and egress along Beltway 8 and US-59, and enhance access to the corridors and the region as a whole. The District provides resources for transportation and traffic flow studies and uses available resources to assist in specific mobility projects, such as traffic signal timing and driveway consolidation along the corridors. The District has worked very closely with METRO on dissemination of information about improvements related to the Rail 90A project. The District has become an advocate for the Brays Oaks community in mobility planning and ensuring METRO receives the community’s concerns and suggestions.
Take maximum advantage of all available resources to create a well-planned transportation system that effectively addresses the current and future mobility needs of the area.
