🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Austin has been chosen for a federal hearing on fast-growing cities and meeting the needs of increased traffic.

The U.S. Department of Transportation says the Beyond Traffic megaregion forums will include Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.

Organizers say the hearings, including Sept. 30 in Austin, are meant to focus on transportation trends and policy proposals to be published in 2016.

The Beyond Traffic effort was launched earlier this year for discussions on the condition of the U.S. transportation system and how to meet future needs.

Experts say the bulk of population growth anticipated in Beyond Traffic — 70 million more people living in the U.S. by 2045 — will occur in 11 metro areas, including Austin.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates Austin’s population at nearly 913,000.
