Traffic Calming and Mopac

 

There are many wonderful things about being located in the center of town. Bad traffic is not one of those things. Loop 1/Mopac is our western boundary, and is the source and destination of a great deal of noise, cut-through traffic and speeders. Old Enfield is part of the Mopac Area Neighborhoods Coalition, and works with the City of Austin and State of Texas toward ensuring the safety of our residents from traffic.

 

Our neighborhood has been working for more than a decade to achieve Traffic Calming goals particularly reducing speed of cars through neighborhood streets, and massive congestion during rush hour. There are no sidewalks in our historic neighborhood, so pedestrians are particularly in peril. Our neighborhood was also mapped out prior to automobiles being so prolific, so certain intersections have visibility issues.

 

Addressing these issues while meeting the city's requirements for accessibility is challenging. For more information on our efforts, follow our blog or contact the committee chair.
