Mechanisms Mike Heiligenstein Is Using To Reduce Traffic Congestion

Mike Heiligenstein was quick to point out that Austin was in need of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority services as soon as the American-Statesman had an issue with the congestion of roads. Heiligenstein, the executive director of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, pointed out some of the work that the firm has done to ensure that it deals with the issue of congestion on roads was building highways and Toll roads. For instance, in 183 A, the firm made a Toll Road in Ceder Park and Leander and this has transformed the communities in this area as they have experienced tremendous growth. The firm has also constricted the U.S. 290 Toll road that is between Austin and Manor which has helped in tripling the capacity compare do the previous road, and it also has improved the non-toll lanes.Learn more : http://www.bizjournals.com/sanantonio/print-edition/2014/01/10/fifteen-minutes-with-mike.html


Heiligenstein states that the Mobility Authority is not all about making roads, but also keeping up with the latest trends. The firm is planning on building a MoPac Express Lanes which will help to institute variable tolling and use sophisticated technology to help with the traffic flow. The use of MoPac will help in synchronizing the supply and demand and make sure that the traffic is predictable. The fiber line will be constructed between 183 South projects and the 290 airport road. The construction will be put in place waiting for the say to improve the current road infrastructure. The firm has partnered with Metropia and created a mobile traffic app that is integrated with the traffic monitoring system as a way of giving alternatives to commuters. The firm also believes that carpooling would help deal with traffic and this is the reason it has partnered with Carma to build carpooling app.Learn more : http://www.slideshare.net/mikeheiligenstein/mike-heiligenstein-of-the-ctrma-the-central-texas-approach
