    MoPac Soundwall Update: Public Input and Design Work To Resume

    July 7th, 2010

    TxDOT has finalized the contracts for the restart of the MoPac1 sound wall/managed lane project.  The restart Open Houses are planned for September.  The NEPA http://www.epa.gov/compliance/nepa/ environmental process will take approximately two years.

    From the TxDOT MoPac1 website (http://www.dot.state.tx.us/project_information/projects/austin/mopac1/):

    Project Resumes

    After a two-year pause due to funding constraints, the MoPac 1 project is about to resume. TxDOT and the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) have joined forces to help fund the much needed improvements identified through the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.

    What’s Next

    In the next few months, MoPac 1’s public involvement, preliminary engineering and environmental processes will resume:

    • TxDOT will complete the schematic design and the NEPA environmental process. These will then be turned over to the CTRMA.
    • If the NEPA process results in a “Build” alternative, the CTRMA will develop detailed plans and construct the project.
