Mike Heiligenstein Outlines the Successes of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority

According to American-Statesman’s Viewpoint editorial released on September 3, 2015, Austin’s traffic congestion problem needs a technological solution. Mike Heiligenstein from CTRMA agreed with the Statesman editorial saying that Austin, Texas, needs multiple resources to address its traffic woes. He added that Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority’s mandate is to help resolve some of the region’s key transportation issues.Learn more : https://www.crunchbase.com/person/mike-heiligenstein#/entity


CTRMA was formed to build and provide mobility solutions. The Mobility Authority built several toll roads including 183A in Leander and Cedar Park, U.S 290 connecting Manor and Austin as well as Express Lanes found on MoPac Expressway that serves Austin’s core population. These road projects have not only eased traffic congestion but also helped spur growth in the nearby regions.Learn more : http://www.bizjournals.com/sanantonio/print-edition/2014/01/10/fifteen-minutes-with-mike.html


Mike said that CTRMA was not a privately held company. It is a local Mobility Authority that remains accountable to the counties of Travis and Williamson, which it serves. CTRMA is building MoPac Express Lanes that are designed to help reduce traffic congestion and manage traffic flow in Austin. The lanes will have variable tolling fitted with sophisticated technology. It will enable people to travel to their destinations with ease. However, Mike reiterated that the lanes would not completely reduce traffic congestion.Learn more : http://www.dot.state.tx.us/ttf2009/People/MikeHeiligenstein.htm


Importance of Technology


Mike also added that CTRMA is looking into ways of infusing technological solutions in their future projects making them smart roads. This will require the use of fiber lines embedded along the new 183 South project that the Mobility Authority is constructing between the airport and US 290. Mike anticipates that one day roads and vehicles will be able to talk to each other.


CTRMA partnered with Metropia and created a mobile traffic app that was later integrated with the local traffic monitoring system to provide road users with real-time alternative routes. The Mobility Authority is also working with Carma, which is a carpooling app that encourages ridesharing among commuters.


CTRMA is also encouraging residents to pedal or walk more to reduce congestion in roads. Furthermore, the Mobility Authority started a Highway Emergency Response Operator called HERO that works with Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization to provide roadside assistance to motorists free of cost. HERO patrols Interstate 35 and part of US 183.


Mike Heiligenstein


As the Executive Director of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, Mike Heiligenstein continues to serve the residents of Williamson and Travis counties since 2003. He has overseen the growth of the Mobility Authority from a startup to a nationally recognized transportation agency and toll road operations leader.

Securus Technologies Protecting Officers Working in Jail

Make no mistake about it, any police officer working in a jail is at risk of serious danger each time they arrive at work. If me or one of my fellow officers were to let down our guard for one second, it could mean serious injury in the blink of an eye. We go through extensive training to have each others back, but sometimes these inmates have numbers and time on their side.


Each inmate is sitting there for 24 hours a day, thinking of ways to exploit cracks in the system and punish officers for their being in the jail. I have been the subject of many attacks, and had it not been for Securus Technologies and their latest software, I could have been taken out a long time ago. As skilled as I am at spotting trouble, having the resources we do now is invaluable.


When the team at Securus Technologies installed the inmate communication system, I was put through the training early on and really took to the material. It is amazing how little things that we have been taken for grated all these years actually was a wealth of information that could make each of us safer, and that includes the inmates too.


When we get information from one of these calls that an order has been given by gang leaders to go after a target on a rival gang, not only can we intercept the victim before anything happens, we can identify who is responsible and where the weapons they were going to use have been hidden. One call like that reveals all the players and all the information about how these guys are operating in the shadows.


Without the inmates having a clue who snitched, we all get to be safer and roundup all the players without ever being in the middle of the fighting.

Chris Steven Villanueva: Redefining the Future of Dentistry

When it comes to career decisions, most college graduates do not know which path they should take, but Chris is not like most people. He knew what he wanted to accomplish. Chris was faced with two options, and he chose the road that is not easily trodden- establishing a company. Chris desired to provide the dentists with a firm that could support them without any strings attached, and that is when MB2 Solutions was formed.
In the dental practice world, it is the experienced dentists and big corporations that rule. Most of the small dental practices experience significant challenges trying to run their companies. It was for that reason that Chris decided to establish the firm.
Chris spent time as a sole-proprietor and also as a corporate practitioner and therefore has the experience to guide the dentists in achieving success. The main aim of MB2 Dental Solutions was to provide the dentists with all business services that their practice needs so that they can focus on what is important- taking care of the patients.
Chris is not like many C.E.Os; he doesn’t micromanage his employees. He has surrounded himself with creative and talented people who help him achieve his vision. The best way of managing the team is to provide them with the objectives and let them do their job to the best of their ability. He is an out-of-box thinker, and that is what has helped him come with ideas to improve the Company. The firm has grown to 70 affiliated dental practices.
Technology is a big part of the Company. Today, there are different types of programs and software that help the dentist share their experiences with one another.
The Company has developed a business model which has helped them to achieve success. Chris has established the firm around people. It is a community-based dental practice. Unlike most of the dental practices, MB2 focuses on more than just revenue creation. The team provides support and opportunities for personal growth. They have also allowed the affiliate firms to choose the solutions that are suitable for them. The MB2 team designs tailor-made solutions.
Culture is at the center of the Company and Chris, and the rest of the team try to cultivate it among their employees. MB2 solutions organize bi-annual retreats for the affiliate practice owners.
