The Texas Department of Transportation is conducting a study to explore potential improvements to US 183 from SH 71 to SH 130.
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 south of SH 71 in Travis County. The potential improvements would enhance safety, access and mobility within the project area.
TxDOT will actively engage the surrounding communities throughout the study process. By encouraging participation and community-wide dialogue, transportation improvements that minimize community impacts and reflect community values can be identified. As part of the study, goals and objectives will be established and potential improvements will be identified and evaluated. The study will include the environmental investigations and documentation necessary to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. The study will conclude with the identification of a recommended alternative.
The project began in summer 2019 and is anticipated to take approximately two to three years to complete.
There will be numerous opportunities for the public to provide input and feedback regarding the study and the potential improvements. Opportunities will include open houses, one-on-one and small group stakeholder meetings, as well as a public hearing.
