Published / by TheRugbyUnion

The American-Statesman has argued in the Sept. 3 Viewpoints editorial that Austin would see an increase in congestion of traffic. They went on to explain that the area will require a tech related solution to solve this increase in traffic congestion. Mike Heiligenstein has taken the time to thank the Statesmen for acknowledging this key issue in regards to public traffic and agrees that the need for addressing this issue should be a top priority. He believes that this issue will require more than one resource in order to see it through to improvement and that it is issues like these the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority handles on a regular basis.

 

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority exists in order to provide mobility solutions for roads or otherwise. They are the driving force behind building the 183A Toll road in Cedar Park and Leander, which has done nothing but help the community in its growth by providing a public traffic solution that works for the everyday worker and citizen living in that area. The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority are also the minds behind the U.S. 290 toll road that exists between Austin and Manor, which tripled the non-toll lanes and provided added capacity for the previously existing road times three, as well. They are a local agency, not a private company. They exist to work for the local communities that their efforts help, particularly for the people of the Travis and Williamson counties for which it has been established for and by.

 

Innovation exists at the heart of the Mobility Authority. They aim to provide new time solutions for old problems, when it comes to providing added mobility for public spaces. The authority is currently developing the new MoPac Express Lanes, which is aiming to improve tolling using nothing but the most recent and sophisticated technology. Who is the head behind this innovative Mobility Authority? That would be Mike Heiligenstein. Heiligenstein developed Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority with a key vision in mind: to provide a well designed and modern transportation network specifically for the benefit of public spaces in Central Texas.

 

Mike Heiligenstein is the Executive Director at Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. He serves not only as a head position at this company but also as the esteemed president of the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association, with 23 years of public official experience for Williamson County behind him.
