Steiner Ranch Area Evacuation Route Design

The Steiner Ranch Area Evacuation Route Design is a capital improvement project proposed to provide an alternative evacuation route out of the Steiner Ranch area neighborhoods. The project will include identification and evaluation of up to four possible emergency evacuation routes and design of the final selected route. The non-public roadway segments of the evacuation route are intended to remain closed except during emergency conditions as directed by Emergency Services. This project is located in Travis County Precinct Two. Proposed funding is by 2017 Certificate of Obligation bonds.

Project Goals

Work with the community to balance needs, priorities and constraints to develop a feasible option that enhances safety and reduces evacuation time for the area.
