Construction is in progress to complete accessible sidewalks along much of North Lamar Boulevard from 183 to Braker Ln. This work is primarily funded by a grant which ADAPT and others worked to get in 2011. It also uses a little bit of money from the City’s 2012 bond election.
There will be lots more improvements coming over the next several years, from the 2012 and 2016 bonds. Learn more about the North Lamar Boulevard 2011 mobility corridor study, including proposals for raised medians, complete sidewalks, more effective intersections, street trees, and pedestrian crosswalks.
