Prevent Gridlock on Mopac: Act Now to Stop the Aquifer Toll Road
Do we need more highway lanes over the Barton Springs Recharge Zone? Elected
officials who sit on the board of CAMPO, our local transportation planning
agency, are considering the proposed extension of State Highway 45
Southwest, a 4 to 6 lane toll road that would connect the southern end of
Mopac to FM 1626 and I-35. They will make a decision on Monday, June 8th.
This highway extension would be on top of the Barton Springs Recharge Zone,
bringing pollution to the Springs and Aquifer while dumping thousands of car
trips onto Mopac.
Please take a moment to email our elected officials on CAMPO who will be
deciding the fate of this proposed highway over our aquifer.
Visit our website to email the entire CAMPO board and urge them to remove SH 45 Southwest from our
long-range plan: http://www.sosalliance.org/?alerts&id=430
