New Study Reveals Austin’s Most Dangerous Streets


A recent study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) revealed the most dangerous streets in Austin for bicyclists, according to Culture Map Austin. Using data from the Texas Department of Transportation, the project mapped 1,430 bicycle wrecks reported to local police from 2009-2014.

The honor of most dangerous street in Austin went to Guadalupe Street, which is not terribly surprising considering that many University of Texas students cycle to and from campus on this busy thoroughfare. South Congress Avenue took second place for most dangerous street.

Rounding out the top ten are:

  • I-35
  • North Lamar Boulevard
  • South First Boulevard
  • East Riverside Drive
  • Barton Springs Road
  • South Lamar Boulevard
  • Red River Street
  • Duval Street
