Mobility Master Plan
Cedar Park Mobility Master Plan (MMP) Overview
The Mobility Master Plan (MMP) is a comprehensive and strategic plan that will integrate and modernize the City’s three existing mobility plans into one comprehensive document. The plan will update the recommendations from past plans, including the 2010 Hike and Bike Trails Plan; 2015 Transportation Master Plan and the 2020 Transit Study. The plan will be developed through a collaborative process that will engage a City Council appointed advisory committee, the community at-large, key stakeholders, City Council and City staff. It will integrate 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 will be 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 will only be considered for adding pedestrian facilities or shared use paths where lacking. Corridor specific multimodal cross sections will be developed to accommodate vehicles while balancing needs of other street users such as pedestrian, bike and trails users.
The plan will identify trail, pedestrian, and bike connections to major destinations such as parks, neighborhoods and major commercial and entertainment areas to provide a complete network. It will identify intersection improvements to support the overall mobility of the City including traffic signals, turn lanes, roundabouts and innovative intersections. It will identify corridors that may benefit from advanced signal timing concepts such Advanced Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPMs). It will develop a database of crash information for the past three years for the entire City’s street network and use crash data for promotion of projects which alleviate streets with the greatest safety challenges.It will integrate recommendations from the 2020 Transit Study into the action plan (i.e., Microtransit and Express Bus service to nearby transit hubs and Austin).
Agency coordination meetings will be held with regional agency partners such as CTRMA, TxDOT, Williamson County and Travis County to discuss regional plan alignment and existing plans. It will make recommendations for improvements to City design standards for mobility facilities such as shared use paths and on-street bike lanes.
Mobility improvements recommended in the plan, not including those already in the 2022 transportation bond program, will be prioritized and categorized by short, medium and long-term implementation time frames (2022 transportation bond projects will be in the short term plan). An action plan will be established with a methodology for implementation and will be summarized into a single map for easy reference and use.
