Traffic Speed Abatement

BREAKING February 2017:  Good news! Thanks to neighbor Angie Hardy, the City of Austin Transportation Department has decided the southern part of Emerald Forest Drive (from William Cannon to Turtle Creek Blvd) is eligible for speed cushions.


Speed cushions will reduce speeding along Emerald Forest, as well as the amount of “cut-through” traffic.

The next step is to gather signatures of the residents or owners of the properties along the affected area.

If your property is adjacent to Emerald Forest Drive, someone will be knocking on your door over the next several weeks to ask if you support the proposal.
