University of Texas – Speedway Pedestrian Mall Project – Austin, Texas
The Speedway Avenue on the UT campus serves as one of the primary thoroughfares for UT students and staff. The “Mall” is a place where students can gather informally and it provides a focal point on the campus for an outdoor learning environment. The project is well underway and is transforming the Speedway into a pedestrian friendly destination for many UT campus activities. The section of street extends from Dean Keeton Street south to Jester Circle. The purpose of the project is to redevelop the street from a vehicular thoroughfare to a pedestrian mall. The work on speedway is approximately 2900 LF or .54 miles. 1350 lf – 12″ DI Pipe of domestic water line, 1225 lf – 12″ DI Pipe of Fire water line, 1290 lf – 15″ SDR-26 sanitary sewer pipe, 700 lf – 42″ RCP storm sewer pipe, 930 lf – 30″ RCP storm sewer pipe, 130 lf – 18″ RCP storm sewer pipe.
