Getting Traffic Flowing

It has been argued by the American-Statesman that traffic congestion is only going to increase in the Austin area and it is in need of a tech solution that can solve it. The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is all about addressing mobility problems and they have built the 183A Toll road in Cedar Park and Leander. This has helped them greatly as they have grown and they have also built the U.S. 290 toll road which tripled the capacity of the previous road. It also improved the nontoll lanes.


Mobility Authority is all about innovation and the new MoPac Express Lanes will use sophisticated technology to manage traffic flow. It’s impossible to completely eliminate traffic congestion, but it is possible to get it under control. Getting tolling rates to synchronize will help the supply and demand to ensure that there is a more predictable traffic flow. It is their goal to get and keep the Express Lane moving even when all of the other lanes are at a crawl during rush hour.


Mobility Authority is always looking for ways to utilize technology in their projects in order to create “smart” roads. They will embed fiber lines along the 183 South project so that one day vehicles will be able to communicate to road infrastructure. They have even partnered up with Metropia to create a mobile traffic app that has been integrated with their traffic monitoring system. They are also working n Carma, a carpooling app to encourage more carpooling.


There is a real need to encourage Texas residents to bike and walk more and whenever it is possible, the Mobility Authority builds Shared Use Paths along their project s in order to encourage this. Getting more drivers off the roads will greatly improve the congestion problem.


Mike Heiligenstein, Executive Director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, is a graduate of the university of Texas. He hold s degrees in Government, a Masters of Business Administration, and a Masters of Government. He is serving on the Texas Transportation Institute board as well as the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association board.
