Conducted by the Capital Metro Transportation Authority, this study developed a long-range plan offering guidelines for trail design improvements, determining bike and pedestrian trail alignments, and evaluating existing and future implementation of roadway crossings, trailheads, trail amenities, trail safety, and security options around Austin, TX. It also specifically addresses trail setbacks and separation from railroad. Capital Metro assessed 11 potential trail segment projects and determined prioritization for development based on technical feasibility, cost, and funding opportunities. The study also focused on gathering input from Capital Metro staff and a broad group of stakeholders, including trail users and various state and local government representatives.
