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.

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.  Traffic pattern shifts can be expected as the contractor begins to shift traffic over to new portions of the roadway which allows for reconstruction of the existing roadway.

Construction is expected to continue in 2019, however portions of the new roadway will be opened as the project proceeds.

Under Design

Bell Boulevard Realignment Project

The Bell Boulevard (US 183) Realignment Project is proposed by the City of Cedar Park with the cooperation of the Texas Department of Transportation. The project would return the current Bell Boulevard (US 183) roadway east onto the full extent of Old Highway 183, from Cypress Creek Road to Cedar Park Drive in Cedar Park. Currently, Old Highway 183 is a two-lane roadway parallel to Bell Boulevard (US 183), running generally north and south. Bell Boulevard is proposed to be realigned and relocated to the Old Highway 183 alignment and reconstructed to a four-lane divided roadway that includes a raised median with turn lanes at intersections and driveways.

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.
