Residents asked to take survey for the city Transit Development Plan 
City staff are working with representatives from Capital Metro and a consultant, URS, for a transit development plan to outline future commuter and transit opportunities for Pflugerville residents. Residents are asked to take a transit survey to provide feedback for the project.

transit survey"The goal of the survey is to get a feel for resident's perspective on transit in the community," Assistant City Manager Trey Fletcher said. "Through the survey and public meetings, we will discuss various transit options for Pflugerville, such as a park-and-ride, and return to Council with a plan for the future."

In the 2015 Citizen Survey, residents listed traffic and growth as the two largest resident concerns. The Transit Development Plan will provide some solutions to ease congestion and offer mobility alternatives. Having the transit plan will enable the city to coordinate transit planning efforts for the city and identify opportunities for collaboration with Capital Metro as well as adjacent communities.

The plan will identify f
uture transit needs in Pflugerville, analyze service options and financing, provide recommendations for transit services and complement the future high-capacity services that are part of the Cap Metro Project Connect North Corridor Study.

Take a survey online to give feedback on transit by visitingPftransitplan.org.  An open house and meeting will take place on February 22 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the library to further discuss the project.

The park is planned for development in phases and will serve the immediate and future needs for sports facilities and also provide passive/natural amenities.

Water main line construction impacts north side of Pflugerville Parkway
Construction of a new water main along the northern sides of Pflugerville Parkway (Wilke Ridge Ln. to Regis Dr.), and Black Locust Dr. (Pfennig Ln. and Gazania Dr.) to improve water service is scheduled to begin in February.  The new water main will be installed under the existing sidewalk in both locations so sidewalks in the affected areas will be closed during construction. PfPkwy map

Motorists should expect potential lane closures along Pflugerville Parkway and Black Locust Dr. Construction will also require the contractor to close the Pflugerville Parkway and Regis Dr. intersection for a short duration. The date for this closure has not been identified at this time.  Additional notification will be provided when dates are finalized. 

City staff ask motorists to proceed with caution through construction work zones and observe temporary construction signage.
