The City of Pflugerville began Phase 1 of the Kelly Lane Roadway Widening Project in December 2013 to help alleviate the traffic congestion along the road, thus allowing an additional 4000 vehicles per day on Kelly Lane, enhance regional and local mobility and connectivity, relieve congestion and increase safety with deceleration lanes and sidewalks.  

Safety pfirst - please be careful crossing Kelly
Please be reminded and advise children and all pedestrians to obey construction signs and work zone safety for Kelly Lane.

December 18 - Paving has begun (11 a.m.) and Kennemer intersection is closed. Work will continue until approx 5 p.m. No work on Friday, Dec 19. Anything left unfinished after today will be done on Saturday, Dec 20 to finish up.

December 17 -
Paving and intersection closures will not occur today (Dec.17) due to temperature and rain possibility, but will resume Thursday, Dec. 18. The intersection of Kelly/Kennemer will have intermediate closures on Thursday but will be fully open by the end of the day. (5 p.m.)

December 16 update:
Many parents have asked about the crosswalks and child pickup after school. Since the road will be closed at the intersection of Kelly/Kennemer intermittently to allow for paving, it's better to walk to school as all crosswalks will be open for pedestrian traffic throughout the day.

Vehicular traffic causes congestion because during parts of Dec 16-17 the intersection of Kennemer and Kelly will be closed to vehicles. The goal is to get the paving done as quickly and effectively as possible and then as soon as the city can open the intersection to vehicles we will. We hope to have the road open for the rush-hour commute, but it is project and weather permitting. Thank you for having patience with us as we are working for you!

December 15 Update:

The City of Pflugerville has scheduled the final paving of Kelly Lane to begin the morning of TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2014, and will continue through WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2014, weather permitting. The Kelly Lane/Kennemer intersection will be closed each morning and reopened to traffic at the end of each of the affected days.

The contractor will be final paving the Kelly Lane main lanes, initiating on the north side (westbound main travel lanes), beginning Tuesday, December 16th. At the completion of westbound paving, westbound traffic will be shifted to the new travel lanes. Final paving on the south side lanes (eastbound direction), will be phased in Tuesday and Wednesday with eastbound traffic being maintained throughout that time. Traffic cones and other temporary control devices will be installed along the finished paved portions of Kelly Lane until final striping of the roadway is completed. Final striping is expected to occur after the holiday season.

Detours will be set up at all approaches to the intersection of Kelly and Kennemer with signage orchestrating vehicular traffic to alternate routes. Please see the provided Detour Plan. Everyone accessing Kennemer Drive is urged to seek an alternate route during these construction operations. Please use caution and safety during the paving operations at the Kennemer intersection.
