Purpose: TxDOT, in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration and the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority invites citizens to an open house and public hearing for the Bergstrom Expressway (US 183) project. Members of the project development team will be available to answer questions during the open house. During the public hearing, a presentation will be given on the proposed improvements and citizens will be able to make comments for the public hearing transcript.

Project information will be displayed at the hearing and may be reviewed prior to the hearing during normal business hours at the TxDOT Austin District Office located at 7901 N. I-35, at Ruiz Branch Library located at 1600 Grove Blvd., and at the University Hills Branch Library located at 4721 Loyola Lane.

The public hearing will be conducted in English. Persons interested in attending the hearing who have special communication or accommodation needs, or need an interpreter, are encouraged to call (512) 832-7001. Requests should be made at least seven days prior to the public hearing. Every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate these needs.
   
Description: The proposed project includes adding lanes on US 183 from US 290 to SH 71. The project being considered would have six tolled main lanes (three in each direction) and four to six non-tolled access road lanes (two to three in each direction). The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility because of the increase in the surrounding population, traffic volumes, and vehicle crashes. Approximately four acres of additional right of way and nine acres of easements would need to be acquired for the proposed improvements. The proposed project would not displace any residences or businesses.
