2014 and 2015 Transportation Bond Projects

PecanSteast In 2014 voters approved $28 million in transportation projects and in 2015 gave an additional $9 million to fund Weiss Lane.

E Pecan Street

E Pecan Street from State Highway 130 eastward to Weiss Lane will be three lanes with curb and gutter with a sidewalk and rehabilitation from Weiss to Cameron Road. These are the first three lanes of a future six-lane corridor for East Pecan. The city's Thoroughfare Plan indicates that one day Pecan will be a six-lane road with this as the first step of achieving that goal. These three lanes would be the first half of the future six-lane corridor.

Update: Under design. Surveys are complete and the right-of-way notices are out for property acquisition. (September 2015)

East Pflugerville Parkway

East Pflugerville Parkway from SH 130 east toward Lake Pflugerville will include reconstruction of the existing two-lane road with curb and gutter and providing the first two lanes of a future four-lane corridor as identified in the city's Thoroughfare Plan. A new sidewalk will run along Pflugerville Parkway from Colorado Sand Drive to Becker Farm Road

Update: Still in early stages of design. Construction anticipated in Fall 2016. In a privately-funded project, Newland Communities widened East Pflugerville Parkway from SH 130 to Colorado Sand Boulevard in summer of 2015. Project information.

Weiss Lane

Weiss Lane will undergo a reconstruction to the existing two-lane section and incorporate shoulders and turn lanes at major intersections. This project is via a cost-sharing safety project with Travis County bond funds ($6.73 million) previously approved by county voters to reconstruct the current roadway with turn lanes and drainage improvements.

Update: At the November 18, 2014, Council meeting, the city approved an inter-local agreement with Travis County to proceed on improvements to Weiss Lane. With the announcement of a fourth high school along Weiss Lane, the City Council put Weiss Lane back on the ballot in 2015. In the November 2015, bond election voters approved an additional $9.5 million to make Weiss a four-lane urban roadway. Weiss Lane will be four lanes from just north of the bridge by Pecan to Kelly Lane, adjacent to the future high school. 

Rowe Lane

Rowe Lane will undergo reconstruction of the existing two-lane section and add shoulders to the road. The project is via a cost-sharing safety project with Travis County bond funds (1.46 million) approved by voters to reconstruct the existing two-lane section.

UpdateNovember 18, 2014, the City Council approved an inter-local agreement to proceed with Travis County on improvements to Rowe Lane. The preliminary survey is complete and plans are underway with environmental review. (October 2015) Expect construction in 2016.

Heatherwilde Boulevard

Heatherwilde Boulevard from State Highway 45 south to Wilke Ridge Lane will widen into a four-lane urban roadway with utility and pedestrian improvements, a bridge replacement and an added hike and bike trail underpass. A traffic signal will be added at Kingston Lacy Boulevard and intersection improvements will align New Meister Lane where it intersects Heatherwilde Blvd to a 90-degree angle.

Update: Design is 95% complete and the city is finalizing property acquisition. Public meetings were held in the fall to discuss the beginning of the construction in January 2016. (December 2016)
