In partnership with the Downtown Austin Alliance and the City of Austin, we’ve launched improvements to the area around Shoal Creek and 3rd Street, known in the Trail Plan as Cypress & Shoal Creek. The 2018 Shoal Creek Trail Plan flagged many desired improvements to this busy area, including a series of public plazas along 3rd Street, ecological restoration, wayfinding signage, and trail and bikeway connectivity projects.

Cypress & Shoal Creek sits at the gateway to critical community resources and major public investments such as the Central Library, the Seaholm Power Plant redevelopment, and the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail. Making it easier and safer to navigate this area and enhancing multimodal access is fundamental to ensuring that all Austinites can use these resources.
