Opportunities to Shape the Red Line Parkway
There are several current and upcoming opportunities for you to help shape the Red Line Parkway:
ATX Walk Bike Roll Public Input Map, by March 6th: This is a huge opportunity to recommend new walk/bike/roll paths in our city. Take a few moments and provide a few new critical connections, short or long, on their map. These could be along a street, through an alleyway, between houses, across a water detention field, along a utility corridor, or along a railway! Don’t forget to draw in all of those short connections to your favorite Austin trail and park.
McKalla Station Charette, March 5th: The AIA Austin Urban Design Committee is joining with CTX ASLA for a one-day workshop focused on creative solutions to incorporate the Red Line Parkway into the constrained McKalla Station area. Learn more and register.
Crestview Station - Community Design Workshop, March 1st [This has been postponed, likely to April, and the registration link has been removed. Stay tuned to Red Line Parkway Initiative and Project Connect for updates.]: Join us at the first public input session about the future Orange Line Crestview Station. The shape of this station area impacts the alignment of the Red Line Parkway and the Lamar and Airport Boulevards intersection, and has tremendous potential as a gathering space to see your friends and neighbors. Register to attend—and receive an update in case the date changes.
MetroBike and Pickup Webinar: This input session was postponed from February 1st. Follow us on Twitter to receive the latest updates once it’s rescheduled. We’ll also post right here via our newsletter, if we receive advance notice from Capital Metro.
- 4th Street Corridor - Greenway?: Have you shared your vision for 4th Street with the Project Connect team yet? You can review the December 2021 presentation & video materials here. Email your input to [email protected]. Please consider expressing your support to create a top-notch walking and bicycling, tree-lined, connection along 4th St. between the Downtown Station and Shoal Creek. And perhaps also: a multimodal hub with ample secure bike parking and bike repair facilities.
