We can always use an extra hand with a multitude of things. Email us at volunteer@fix290.org for more information.



Make a donation to us.

We are a local grassroots group of concerned residents and business owners. Your contributions go a long way and help us print reports, flyers and other materials to educate the public and transit officials of the benefits of the parkway concept.

When you consider that even the smallest donation can save you thousands of dollars in future tolls, any donation to the Fix290 effort is a great investment indeed!


Contact CAMPO and tell them you support Fix290

Letters from citizens carry far more weight than phone calls or e-mails, but you can use this form if you can only send e-mail.

Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty has not yet made up his mind regarding the TxDOT improvements to the Y at Oak Hill. Even if you have contacted him before, it is critically important to contact Commissioner Daugherty now and urge him to support the Fix290 parkway concept.
