The project aims to improve safety and mobility for all travelers, provide safe turning access to and from the adjacent school and neighborhoods, improve pedestrian and bicycle connectivity, and improve access to Southwest Bypass, says the city and TxDOT.

Proposed improvements include:

  • Widening RM 2243 (Leander Road) from Southwest Bypass to Norwood Drive to two lanes in each direction
  • Adding raised medians with turn lanes
  • Providing pedestrian and bicyclist paths from Southwest Bypass to the I-35 frontage road
  • Installing a signal at RM 2243 and River Ridge Drive
  • Reconstructing the intersection of RM 2243 and Southwest Bypass to be compatible with nearby project plans

Additional right of way would be required; however, no residential or non-residential displacements are anticipated at this time, says the city.

Written comments may be submitted:

To record a verbal comment, residents can call 512-887-2095. Comments must be received or postmarked by June 9 at 11:59 p.m. to be included in the official record of the public hearing.
