Best Transit Decision In Quite Some Time

Austin Transportation Study

In a magnanimous Christmas gift to the citizens of Austin, the ATS decided last December to cancel plans for several new roads and street expansions over the Edwards Aquifer/Barton Springs Contributing Zone. The decision is not only ecologically sound, but is expected to save taxpayers at least $47 million in construction and land-acquisition costs.
