Travis County commissioners replaced one appointee to the local toll agency board Tuesday and kept another.

John Langmore, a lawyer and transportation consultant who served for four years on the Capital Metro board, will replace Charles Heimsath on the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority board, the commissioners decided. David Armbrust, an Austin development lawyer who has served on the mobility authority board since 2012, was reappointed.

Both will serve two-year terms on the seven-member mobility authority board, which has three members appointed by Travis County, three by Williamson County and a chairman appointed by the governor. The mobility authority, under agreements with TxDOT, operates four tollways in Central Texas and has two more under construction.
