The WTS – Heart of Texas Chapter is honored to present Robert Spillar, P.E. the City of Austin Transportation Director.

As the lead transportation professional for the City of Austin, he is responsible for the City’s multimodal transportation portfolio, including transportation planning, traffic engineering and operations, parking enterprise, right-of-way permitting, special events management, and more.

These partnerships have resulted in projects including the completion of the Ben White/Loop 1 interchange using pass through financing, interim improvements to the Oak Hill “Y” employing innovative intersection design, modernization of parking operations with a complete new system, and a renewed energy and focus on the I-35 corridor through Central Texas.
