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. Staff is nearing completion of the Preliminary Engineering Report for Anderson Mill Road, which will include recommendations to improve safety and mobility along the roadway segment. This project started as a grassroots, community-led effort to address safety and mobility issues along Anderson Mill Road in northwest Austin.

Draft Preliminary Engineering Recommendations
City staff unveiled draft recommendations on Feb. 10 during a public open house.
The recommendations represent about 30 percent design and will be refined further during the design phase.While comments related to exact specifications of the recommendations may not be addressed prior to finalizing the PER, there is still time for further review and modification. For example, if you prefer a larger or more narrow sidewalk, that comment may not be reflected in the PER before final publication, but will be considered during design.
Please provide comments no later than Feb. 28, 2018.
City staff initiated 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.
Following completion of the PER, the design phase will immediately begin to further refine designs and cost estimates.
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
