The Austin Transportation and Public Works Departments are reviewing Anderson Mill Road between Spicewood Parkway and US 183 for opportunities to enhance safety and mobility for all road users.
The 2016 Mobility Bond, approved by voters in November 2016, included funding for preliminary engineering, design and construction of improvements on Anderson Mill Road. Currently, staff is preparing to move forward with project development, starting with preliminary engineering. The effort will include community engagement, in addition to public input that has been received thus far, as well as review of constraints such as right-of-way and utilities, and coordination with the City’s adopted transportation plans and policies.
This project started as a grassroots, community-led effort to address safety and mobility issues along Anderson Mill Road in northwest Austin. For more information about the community-led initiative, click here
Timeline and Where We’re At Now
Staff kicked off the Preliminary Engineering effort in February 2017. Preliminary Engineering includes evaluating existing conditions based on community input and transportation metrics such as vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle counts, speed, driveway analysis, crash pattern analysis, right of way width and availability, drainage, sidewalk condition, utilities, etc. Staff will develop draft recommendations and present them to the community in fall 2017 for review and input.
Preliminary Engineering – 2017 to 2018 Design and Permitting – 2018 to 2020 (includes right of way acquisition if needed) Construction – 2020 to 2021 (includes utility relocation if needed
