Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority commonly abbreviated as CTRMA is a government agency created to operate independently. CTRMA was initiated in the year 2002 so as to help develop a better and efficient system in the counties of Williamson and Travis.
As a company, CTRMA opts to use highly advanced technology, especially in civil engineering and physical planning.
With the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority being an independent government entity, it is presided over by a seven board member bench. Besides, an executive director happens to head this institution and oversee that company employees do all that pertains to their job description.
The executive director in question is none other than Mike Heiligenstein. Mike is a very accomplished person having been part and parcel of city and county affairs over the years.
Under his leadership, CTRMA has been able to integrate electronic and cashless toll collection criteria to the road system. For this reason, counties like Travis and Williamson experience increased revenue collection today.
It is by the aid of income generated through the collection of road levies that CTRMA has been better placed to finance and execute all its projects.
CTRMAs reach also extends to airports, seaports and transit services within its area of jurisdiction. It is under the watchful eye of Mike Heiligenstein that CTRMA introduced video billing.
Since Mike Heiligenstein is very vocal on the integration of non-motorized transport facilities, he has seen to it that the construction of pedestrian footpaths and cycling lanes occurs in any of the road infrastructure projects his company has an interest in. Presently, there are plans by Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority to create a modern road network with expressways.
Biz Journals reported that Mike Heiligenstein believes that for the road networks to reach a point where they are considered a hundred percent efficient, construction and design ought to happen while conforming to the latest technology. For instance, the new road arteries ought to be made smart enough to accommodate digital vehicles.
For CTRMA to cater for parking needs of Central Texas residents, the creation of new parking stations is envisioned to take place in a manner that minimizes wastage of vertical space. The amount of headroom between one vehicle to the other will be not more than one inch.
Since the human population is ever growing in Central Texas, CTRMA understands that the only way to deal with traffic congestion is to create systems that are fully optimized and that are created using future population projections.
