Braker/I35 transportation safety / seguridad en el transporte

The city’s transportation department identified Braker/I35 as one of the top crash intersections in Austin. They’re getting ready to start six months of construction on $1.2 million of improvements. Everybody drive safe and be careful!

El departamento de transporte de la ciudad identificó a Braker / I35 como una de las principales intersecciones de choques en Austin. Se están preparando para comenzar seis meses de construcción con $ 1.2 millones de mejoras. ¡Todos manejen seguros y tengan cuidado!

The work includes / El trabajo incluye:

  • Add a median in Braker west of the I35 intersection / Añadir una mediana en Braker Ln. al oeste de la intersección I35. This will make more space for vehicles turning left (north) onto the interstate to wait, as well as make a little order for folks turning in and out of the businesses around Middle Fiskville and Pollyanna.
    Esto dará como resultado más espacio para que los vehículos giren a la izquierda (norte) hacia la interestatal para esperar. También aumentará el orden para las personas que entre y salgan de los negocios en Middle Fiskville y Pollyanna.
  • Add “continental striping” to crosswalks for better visibility / Añadir “rayas continentales” a los pasos de peatones para una mejor visibilidad
  • Rebuild the pedestrian ramps around the intersections, for ADA compliance, and fill in sidewalk gaps / Reconstruir las rampas peatonales que rodean las intersecciones, con el cumplimiento de la ADA, y completar las aceras.

This is the same program that did the safety improvements at N Lamar and Rundberg a couple years ago. The other intersection in our area that is included in the program is N Lamar and Payton Gin, although that work is not scheduled yet.

Este es el mismo programa que hizo las mejoras de seguridad en N Lamar Blvd y Rundberg Ln hace un par de años. La otra intersección en nuestra área que está incluida en el programa es N Lamar Blvd y Payton Gin, aunque ese trabajo aún no está programado.
