Cedar Park Mobility Master Plan (MMP) Overview
The Mobility Master Plan (MMP) is a comprehensive and strategic plan that integrates and modernizes the City’s three existing mobility plans into one comprehensive document. The plan updated the recommendations from past plans, including the 2010 Hike and Bike Trails Plan; the 2015 Transportation Master Plan and the 2020 Transit Study. The plan was developed through a collaborative process that will engage a City Council-appointed advisory committee, the community-at-large, key stakeholders, the City Council and City staff. It integrates the transportation projects approved in the 2022 transportation bond election into the action plan.
With Cedar Park being mostly built-out, the existing street network was reviewed to determine where remaining new connections can be modified to accommodate multimodal cross-sections, especially at intersection bottlenecks. Streets that are “built-out” or unlikely to be changed and showing adequate capacity at build-out will be specified as “established streets” and were only considered for adding pedestrian facilities or shared-use paths where lacking. Corridor-specific multimodal cross-sections were developed to accommodate vehicles while balancing the needs of other street users such as pedestrians, bikes and trail users.
The plan identifies trail, pedestrian, and bike connections to major destinations such as parks, neighborhoods and major commercial and entertainment areas to provide a complete network. It identifies intersection improvements to support the overall mobility of the City including traffic signals, turn lanes, roundabouts and innovative intersections. It identifies corridors that may benefit from advanced signal timing concepts such as Advanced Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPMs). It develops a database of crash information for the past three years for the entire City’s street network and use crash data for the promotion of projects that alleviate streets with the greatest safety challenges. It integrates recommendations from the 2020 Transit Study into the action plan.
Agency coordination meetings are held with regional agency partners such as CTRMA, TxDOT, Williamson County and Travis County to discuss regional plan alignment and existing plans. These meetings make recommendations for improvements to City design standards for mobility facilities such as shared-use paths and on-street bike lanes.
