Cap Metro Board Greenlights Central Corridor Study

As reported last week by Caleb Pritchard of the Austin Monitor, the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority board of directors approved a contract with the engineering firm AECOM to guide a new study of transportation in the urban core dubbed the Central Corridor Comprehensive Transit Analysis, or CCCTA.

The $3 million, 30-month study is Project Connect’s first foray back into the central city after voters overwhelmingly rejected the $1 billion roads-and-rail bond known as Proposition 1 in November 2014.

Since then, Project Connect – a partnership between Cap Metro, the city of Austin and Lone Star Rail – has largely kept a low profile. Behind the scenes, however, Cap Metro has been laying the groundwork for the CCCTA. In August, the agency began shopping for consultants to assist in the study. Staff ultimately recommended that AECOM win the bid, and the board’s Operations, Planning and Safety Committee endorsed that pick earlier this month.
