The WTS – Heart of Texas Chapter is honored to present Mr. Mike Heiligenstein, Executive Director of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA), as our featured speaker for our May 16, 2012 luncheon program.  The preliminary plans for the MoPac Expressway are moving quickly, and his presentation will answer questions about this project.

In his over 8 years at the CTRMA, Mike has overseen completion of the first phase of the 183A toll road and has led efforts to create a comprehensive regional transportation system. In 2010, the CTRMA broke ground on an additional $600 million in capital projects, the Manor Expressway and 183A Extension.  The CTRMA expects to commence construction of over $1 billion in new projects over the next 5 years.

Prior to joining the CTRMA, Mike served 23 years as a public official in the rapidly growing communities of Round Rock and Williamson County. While in office, Mike spearheaded the development of more than $500 million in public infrastructure projects including new roadway projects to address increasing congestion, acquisition of regional park land and led efforts to begin creation of a regional trail system. A leader on environmental issues, Mike is past chair of the Central Texas Clean Air Force and was a founding member of Envision Central Texas. He has also been named to the advisory council of the prestigious Texas Transportation Institute and is the 2nd Vice President of the International Bridge Tunnel and Turnpike Association as well as serving on its Board of Directors.

Mike is a graduate of the University of Texas with a Bachelor and Masters of Government and a Master of Business Administration degree.
