Regional Growth and Mobility 2021
The Future of the Austin Metroplex
Posted on 09/17/2021 by Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce
Our premier transportation and mobility event provided a conversation for business and community leaders to learn about the future of the Austin metroplex from regional experts. Experts provided information on mobility projects including I-35, toll roads, and much more.
Learn more about how we support commonsense policies and transportation projects that accommodate our rapidly growing population, relieve congestion, and enhance our quality of life.
Putting our best foot forward.
The Regional Growth and Mobility event on August 30 marked our first in-person event of 2021. Our partners at ReturnSafe helped ensure that we put our best foot forward to make events as safe as possible for our members, guests, and staff. Thank you, ReturnSafe!
