Heatherwilde Boulevard construction begins Feb 8
Expect delays as the City of Pflugerville begins reconstruction of Heatherwilde Blvd. starting February 8, 2016.
The Heatherwilde Blvd. Widening project is reconstructing and widening
the existing two-lane road to a four-lane divided roadway with raised
medians, turn lanes, drainage improvements, pedestrian facilities and a
signal at Kingston Lacy Blvd.
The project begins with installation of temporary lanes on the west side
of Heatherwilde Blvd. for use during the roadway construction, along
with the concurrent installation of a traffic signal at Kingston Lacy.
The temporary traffic lanes will allow for two-way traffic, north and
southbound, for the duration of the reconstruction. Access to all
businesses and adjacent properties will remain open during construction.
Road closures will occur at Great Basin Ave. and Wilke Ridge Ln. in the
initial phases of construction, so please watch for road closure
The $6.7 million project is funded by the 2014 Transportation Bond
approved by the voters. The roadway will be complete in 2017. Motorists
are asked to slow down in the construction zone. Follow the project and
get additional information about potential closures online at Pflugervilletx.gov/projects.
