MoPac Intersection Improvements Studied for Southwest Austin

If you travel MoPac for work or play in southwest Austin, you know bad traffic congestion first-hand, especially at the Slaughter Lane and La Crosse Avenue intersections.

Help may be soon on the way! Officials with the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) are working with local partners to study mobility and safety improvements at those intersections.  In light of public input received last fall and continuing engineering analysis, the Mobility Authority and TxDOT are designing underpasses at Slaughter Lane and La Crosse Avenue. A “do nothing” or No-Build option is also still under consideration.

Additional community meetings are planned, so please watch your inbox for times/dates! Visit for information and to sign up for updates.
