Bastrop adopts new transportation master plan – Statesman

Alliance Planning Director Jim Harvey and Bastrop City Engineer Wesley Brandon

Bastrop’s new transportation master plan envisions a city with increasing divided highways, roadways connecting east to west, bridges spanning the Colorado River and pedestrian walkways and bike paths that give commuters other options off the road.

The 89-page document, which will guide future road and property develop in Bastrop, was crafted by ATG and adopted by the City Council last week.

“The goal was to develop a high quality transportation system for the city — roads, streets, transit, public transportation — to help the council make decisions that benefit the community and meet the needs of the community going forward,” Alliance Planning Director Jim Harvey said.

The city received a $200,000 grant from the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization to complete the study, which also shows up in a condensed form as a chapter in the city’s new Comprehensive Plan adopted by the council in November.
