AUSTIN — The Texas Department of Transportation is conducting a study to explore potential safety and mobility improvements to US 183 from SH 71 to SH 130. TxDOT will host the first public open house for the project on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019. The open house will be from 5 - 7 p.m. at the Creedmoor Community Center, located at 12511 FM 1625 in Creedmoor. No formal presentation will be given, and attendees can come and go at their convenience.

The population of the Austin area has grown significantly in recent years. The increase in population has resulted in the need for transportation improvements such as those being considered along US 183 in south Travis County. The potential improvements would enhance safety and mobility within the project area.

The existing roadway is primarily a 4-lane divided highway. There are multiple neighborhoods, businesses and other structures located along or in close proximity to the corridor, and the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is adjacent to US 183. TxDOT will actively engage the surrounding communities throughout the study process. As part of the study, goals and objectives will be established and potential improvements will be identified and evaluated. The study will conclude with the identification of a recommended alternative.

Maps, drawings and project information will be on display at the open house, and project team members will be available to answer questions. Comments from the public are encouraged.

Comments received by Friday, Nov. 22, 2019, will be included in the official open house record. Submit comments by email to US183Project@gmail.com or by mail to: Troy Olney, Attn: 183 from SH 71 to SH 130 Study, TxDOT Austin District Office, P.O. Box 15426, Austin, TX 78761.
