Project Details

The Marsh Creek Road and Trawick Road corridor provide access to Wilburn Elementary School, Marsh Creek Park, and frequent transit on Capital Boulevard. However, these two streets have little to no pedestrian or cycling infrastructure to facilitate a multi-modal transportation system.

The two streets function as one street connecting Capital Boulevard and New Hope Road. For this reason, the City decided to combine the two streets into one project. The City is planning to widen Marsh Creek Road and Trawick Road to three lanes from Capital Boulevard to New Hope Road.

Proposed improvements include sidewalks, enhanced bus stops, bicycle infrastructure, street trees, and traffic calming. There is also the possibility of a roundabout at the intersection of Marsh Creek Road and Trawick Road.

The public art can be stand-alone or integrated into the site. The artist is being brought into the project early to allow for greater site integration and the possibility of including some infrastructure in the project construction (rather than public art) budget.

This project is part of the Percent for Art program and is part of the Marsh Creek Road & Trawick Road Improvement Project.

Legge Lewis Legge LLC (LLL)

Legge Lewis Legge LLC (LLL) is an award-winning art and architecture studio founded in 2001 by architect Murray Legge FAIA and filmmaker Deborah E. Lewis of Austin TX, and artist Andrea Legge in New York City. 

We work as a team on conception and design and practical work is divided according to the partners’ skills: Architect Murray Legge FAIA, is the founder of Murray Legge Architecture in Austin, Texas. Deborah Eve Lewis is a filmmaker, DP, cinematographer, and film professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Andrea Legge is an artist and designer based in New York City. LLL is a family business; Murray and Deb are partners, and Andrea and Murray are siblings.

Legge Lewis Legge projects have won many local and national design awards; a National AIA Design Award; a Texas Society of Architects Citation of Honor, and an Austin Art in Public Places Community Arts award among others. LLL has also been included in the Americans for the Arts’ ‘Public Art in Review’ annual honor roll.

We feel that public art is by definition site- and community-specific, and we don’t approach a project with preconceived concepts, apart from meeting practical requirements. We see public art as creative infrastructure for community that incorporates local cultural and natural histories.
