Purpose:

TxDOT has launched the US 290 from Oak Hill to Dripping Springs Planning and Feasibility Study. This study will identify future safety and mobility improvements to US 290 from RM 1826 in southwest Austin to RM 12 in Dripping Springs. The corridor spans both Travis and Hays counties.

The purpose of the open house is to request input from the community regarding safety and mobility needs on the US 290 corridor within the study limits.

An open house will be held at each end of the study area. Both open houses will have identical materials and attendees can come and go at their convenience. Study team members will be available to answer questions and receive input from the public.

If you are unable to attend, take our online survey. Comments must be received on or before Oct. 21, 2019 to be included in the official record.

Description:

The purpose of this planning and feasibility study is to identify long-term safety and mobility solutions for the US 290 corridor and to establish a recommended right-of-way footprint. The study is anticipated to take one year and will include many opportunities for public involvement. At the conclusion of the planning and feasibility study, TxDOT plans to enter into the environmental study and schematic design process to further develop any potential solutions identified. Of note, the proposed project would connect to the Oak Hill Parkway project.
