Impress upon TXDOT Austin to begin safety infrastructure improvements along Texas 29
This petition had 1,168 supporters
In 2017 alone at least 4 fatal accidents and 20+ non fatal accidents have happened along Texas State Highway 29 between US 183 in Williamson County and US 281 in Burnet County. Since January 1, 2016 there have been 157 reported accidents along this stretch of roadway.
Since April of 2017, this section of roadway has had at least 5 fatal accidents resulting in at least 6 fatalities. The Texas Department of Transportation released a statement to HCTX News saying that an improvement project is in the "cost estimate" stage, which we believe is more lip service coming from the agency at the Austin District level.
We are urging citizens to sign this petition. It is our hopes that this petition will influence the leadership at the district level to take immediate action to preserve the lives and safety of the residents and commuters who travel this road daily.
We are urging the department to correspond openly with members of the media and be willing to answer the tough question-"Why have they not acted to preserve the life of the public?"
We are seeking immediate action by the district on this highly sensitive issue and attend organized meetings with members of the public, at a time and place which is conducive to allow the most citizens to voice their concerns.
