Capital Metro ocials said they knew they were asking a lot of the community going into a Nov. 3 vote to fund a sprawling revamp of the city’s public transportation network. Voters responded by approving the $7.1 billion transit plan and a permanent tax increase, set at 8.75 cents per $100 of valuation for scal year 2020-21, or about $315 for the owner of a $360,000 median-value

Austin home. More than 418,000 votes were cast, and 57.9% of voters approved. At the start of 2020, residents needed only to drive on I-35 at rush hour to understand the city’s trac woes. The average speed on the 8-mile stretch of I-35 from Hwy. 290 to Ben White Boulevard traveling south at 5:30 p.m. was 22 miles per

FROM JACK: Public transportation is an important part of every American city. When I was late to class in Boston, I always blamed it on the squealing, screeching train— sometimes it was actually true. And yet, thinking of the view of the Charles River on the Red Line still makes me homesick. Austin is poised to put public transit in the spotlight after voters approved a $7.1 billion transit plan Nov. 3. When the Blue Line is nished, set for 2029, it is anticipated to provide the rst experience of the city for visitors coming from the airport. Hopefully, when that moment comes, the new trains can showcase a city we are proud to call home. Jack Flagler, EDITOR

beyond ination, particularly in this economy. People are suering,” board member David Armbrust said. The board also chose to keep the base toll rate on the MoPac express lanes at $0.35 rather than to adopt a scheduled 5-cent increase Jan. 1. The board’s policy is to increase the base rate by 5 cents per segment each year in order to eventually align the MoPac rates with the $0.50 base rate on the forthcoming US 183 North toll project, which would see the construction of express lanes in Northwest Austin. The new toll project is expected to start construction in 2021 and to open in 2025. CTRMA Board Member John Langmore said the mobility authority is still evaluating the project along 183, and therefore, a one-year pause in dicult economic times made sense.

Each year, tolls on roads operated by the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority are increased to keep up with ination. The mobility authority ties those increases to the consumer price index, which measures changes in how much consumers pay for goods and services over time. This year, that CPI increase is 1.37%, which means toll rates will increase Jan. 1 by 1 to 2 cents per gantry. The mobility authority had an option at its Oct. 28 to raise the rates further, up to 2.3%, according to a forecast by engineering consultant Stantec in a report on nancing for a project that would add toll lanes along US 183 from Leander to Liberty Hill. However, the board opted to stick with the lower increases. “I have a concern about raising the rates

ONGOING PROJECTS 1 Work begins on intersections in North Central Austin and South Central Austin Two projects funded by the $720 million transportation bond Austin voters approved in 2016 have begun to improve road intersections at the north and south ends of Central Austin. Both projects began construction in mid- November, and work is expected to last about six months. The project at A East Oltorf Street and Parker Lane will include adding a raised median on Oltorf, relocating a Capital Metro bus stop and adding pedestrian paths. The project at B West St. Johns Avenue and North Lamar Boulevard will similarly add raised medians and improve the street for bicycle riders and pedestrians. Timeline: November 2020-April 2021 (St. John’s and North Lamar), November 2020-July 2021 (Parker and Oltorf) Cost: $1.15 million (St. Johns and North Lamar), $1.4 million (Parker and Oltorf) Funding source: 2016 mobility bonds

RECENT PROJECTS 2 Capital Metro opens new downtown MetroRail station After 18 months of construction, the downtown MetroRail station just north of the Austin Convention Center ocially opened Oct. 19. The new station will increase connections to other public transportation options and allow Capital Metro to increase the frequency and capacity along its Red Line. The station will also connect to additional rail lines built as part of Capital Metro’s public transportation expansion plan After Austin voters passed Project Connect Nov. 3 by a margin of more than 60,000 votes. The downtown station project was initially set to cost $38.86 million and nish in spring 2021, but it came in $3 million under budget and nished six months early. Timeline: March 2019-October 2020 Cost: $35.86 million Funding source: Capital Metro

UPCOMING PROJECTS 3 South Lamar corridor receives state approval to start construction A project that includes building two-way bicycle lanes, improving intersections and adding Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant sidewalks along South Lamar Boulevard from Riverside Drive to Hwy. 290 is set to begin after it received environmental clearance from the Texas Department of Transportation in October. The rst section crews will begin constructing along South Lamar is between Barton Springs Road and Riverside Drive. The city expects work to begin early in 2021 after utility relocation is performed in November and December. South Lamar is one of nine corridors being improved as part of the 2016 mobility bond. Timeline: early 2021-2024 Cost: $34 million-$42 million Funding source: 2016 mobility bonds

TRAVEL Austin airport prepping for first holiday travel season since onset of COVID-19pandemic

The city of Austin is anticipating increased passenger traffic at the airport as it heads into the holiday season.

Passenger stats

Beginning in March, year-over-year passenger numbers in Austin plummeted due to COVID-19 restrictions. Since April, passengers have slowly returned, but numbers remain low.

BY NICHOLAS CICALE

requirements, according to Haynes. “If you come to the airport, you do have to wear a mask, and you will notice that everyone is wearing a mask,” she said. Not all concessions and stores are open, but 35 of the nearly 60 businesses were open as of Nov. 1, Haynes said. Some have reopened using single-use dishware and virtual or one-use menus. Plexiglass is installed at cash registers, and mobile checkout and ordering are available at some restaurants. “You don’t have to interact with anybody. They’re doing their part to make sure that it’s comfortable and safe,” Haynes said. At the South Terminal, which is a 10-minute drive south of the Barbara Jordan terminal and includes all Allegiant and Frontier flights, the same precautions are in place. Jeff Pearse, the CEO of LoneStar Airport Holdings, which operates the South Terminal, said the terminal’s outdoor patio is currently open, as are the outdoor bar and food truck. Furniture has been organized to better accommodate social distancing, he said. A shuttle between both terminals is also still operating. Do your research While the airport is following city of Austin guidelines, others could have different measures in place. Individual airlines also have their own set of rules, Haynes said. For example, Southwest Airlines, which had been blocking off all middle seats, is set to lift that precaution Dec. 1. As of press time, Delta, Alaskan and Hawaiian are the only airlines to have open middle seats after Nov. 30. “Plan ahead, folks. Check your airline, check the status of the flight, make sure you’re going to the right terminal,” Pearse said. “When you plan ahead, your overall airport experience is generally far better.” Even with lower passenger traffic in 2020, Haynes said that precautions and limited staff could slow security checks.

In March, the U.S. State Department issued an advisory to recommend that Americans avoid international travel and states begin to implement quarantine requirements for arriving travelers. With demand plummeting, airlines cut the number of flights they operated each day, and a 42-month streak of passenger traffic growth ended at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. However, since April, the passenger numbers have slowly trended upward. September’s total passenger count was over 417,000, down 70.5% compared to 2019, but up nearly tenfold from April. The holiday travel season could bring in the most passengers since the pandemic began. “We have seen an increase in passenger traffic each month, and as the holidays are approaching, we’re optimistic that we’ll see increased passengers as people are more comfortable with travel,” airport spokesperson Sam Haynes said. The airport has adjusted its protocols as a result of the pandemic. Haynes said that as passengers return this winter, they can expect things to look different. Noticeable changes Haynes said travelers driving into the Barbara Jordan Terminal will see that the economy long-term parking lot is closed, as the airport has suspended parking shuttle services due to COVID-19. However, parking accommodations are still available in the airport’s red and blue garages, which are currently operating at a discounted rate, she said. Both garages are a walkable distance from the terminal entrance. Off-site parking lots not affiliated with the airport, including Park & Zoom and The Parking Spot, are also still open and do offer shuttles to the terminal with masks required. Safety precautions include promoting social distancing, sanitation stations throughout the terminal, plexiglass at Transportation Security Administration checkpoints and mask
