(Austin, Texas) – The Texas Department of Transportation and the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority are hosting an Open House meeting for the Oak Hill Parkway Study on Tuesday, January 20 at Covington Middle School from 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm. Since the last Open House, the mobility improvement concepts have been refined as a result of technical review and community input. These concepts have now been narrowed down to two proposed build alternatives and the no build, or do nothing, alternative. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the process, review and comment on the alternatives, and discuss the collaborative approach to transportation design and engineering, known as Context Sensitive Solutions. Project staff and consultants will be available to answer questions. No formal presentation will be given, and attendees are invited to come and go at their convenience. To learn more about the project, visit www.OakHillParkway.com.

For those unable to attend in-person, a Virtual Open House will be available online at the study website www.OakHillParkway.com and will provide the same information available during the Open House and the opportunity to submit comments. The Virtual Open House will be available from Jan. 21 – 30, 2015.
