Heatherwilde Boulevard construction begins Feb 8
Expect delays as the City of Pflugerville begins reconstruction of Heatherwilde Blvd. starting February 8, 2016.Heatherwilde

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 notices.  

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.
