Regional planning organizations based in Austin and San Antonio are holding public hearings on updates to their four-year plans for transportation infrastructure spending.

The schedules include meetings in Lockhart, Kyle and Dripping Springs.

The Capital Area Metropolitan Organization and the Alamo Area Metropolitan Organization are sifting through project funding requests from cities and counties along the Interstate 35 corridor for inclusion in their 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Programs. The plans are due to the Texas Department of Transportation in June.

CAMPO — which covers Hays, Caldwell, Bastrop, Travis, Williamson and Burnet counties — is holding a series of come-and-go public meetings through March 17. The projects will be culled and prioritized by the organization’s transportation policy board, chaired by Hays County Pct. 3 Commissioner Will Conley.

Comments on proposed spending within the CAMPO footprint can be submitted online through April 15.
