Arial View of the Anderson Mill Road Project-1

The Anderson Mill Road (Phase 1) Reconstruction Project consists of the reconstruction of Anderson Mill Road from RM 1431 south to approximately Gaspar Bend.  Anderson Mill Road will be realigned in several locations and constructed as the full four-lane section on both the north and south ends of the project and two lanes of a future four lane section towards the middle portion of the project, including turn lanes at various driveways and intersections.

 

Speed limit on Anderson Mill Road reduced to 35 miles per hour for construction safety.

 

AMI Construction

Construction on Anderson Mill Road began in early January 2017. For the safety of workers as well as drivers and their passengers the speed limit has been reduced to 35 miles per hour for the duration of the project and will be enforced.

Roadway and utility construction continues throughout the project limits.  Drivers will notice a traffic pattern shift in Early December where traffic will drive on new portions of the roadway.  This switch will allow for construction on the existing roadway.

Construction is expected to be complete in the Summer of 2018, however portions of the new roadway will be opened as the project proceeds.

 

Lone Star Drive Wastewater Improvements Project

 

Lone Star Drive Marquis Lane Wastewater Improvements ProjectThe wastewater line in the area of Lone Star Drive - Marquis Lane is very close to its capacity.  The Lone Star Drive Wastewater Improvements Project is a $2.3 million construction project to replace the existing wastewater line.

Construction of the project will begin in the early summer and is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2018.  It will involve excavation and wastewater pipe installation along the edge of Lone Star Drive and Marquis Lane to Cedar Park Drive. The City will work to ensure that the contractor runs this project smoothly and efficiently.  

In addition to a new wastewater line, Lone Star Drive and Marquis Lane to Cedar Park Drive will be rebuilt as a smoother, improved road.  Traffic on Lone Star Drive and Marquis Lane will be reduced to one lane during a portion of this project.  Flaggers will be present to allow traffic through one lane at a time.  Public informational meetings will be held during this project.  The contractor is Smith Contracting Company Inc. You may contact them at 512-990-7640 or you may contact us at lonestarww@cedarparktexas.gov or 512-401-5550.

New Hope Drive - Ronald Reagan to Sam Bass Road

NHD-RR to SB Layout

 The design of New Hope Drive from Ronald Reagan Blvd. to Sam Bass Road is a 2015 Bond Funded Project. New Hope Drive will be designed and constructed as 4-lane divided roadway with a raised median, curb and gutter, enclosed storm sewer system, illumination, shared use path, and bike lanes.    The design will include all major project components such as engineering, surveying, utility coordination, geotechnical and construction materials testing services, right-of-way acquisition services, environmental assessment, right-of-way appraisals, public involvement, and construction phase services.  The City has not identified a source of funds for the construction of this project.  However, completing the design gives the City a "shovel ready" project that would potentially be a good candidate for Federal funding assistance in order to construct the improvements.
