The purpose of the open house is to discuss the proposed project to realign Bell Boulevard (US 183) between Cypress Creek Road to Cedar Park Drive in Williamson County. The meeting will be held in a come-and-go format, so the public may attend at their convenience. Staff will be available to answer questions.
The purpose of the Bell Boulevard Realignment Project is to improve public safety within the corridor in a manner consistent with the Destination Bell Boulevard Master Plan. The Bell Boulevard Realignment Project would return the current Bell Boulevard roadway east onto the full extent of Old Highway 183 from Cypress Creek Road to Cedar Park Drive in Cedar Park. Currently, Old Highway 183 is a two-lane roadway parallel to Bell Boulevard, running generally north and south. Bell Boulevard would be realigned and relocated to the Old Highway 183 alignment and reconstructed to a four-lane divided roadway that would include a raised median with turn lanes at intersections and driveways. The project would also include lighting, and pedestrian and bicycle accommodations. The project is 0.819 mile in length and would include grading, base, asphalt pavement, culverts, signing, and pavement markings. The project would extend from approximately 180 feet south of Cedar Park Drive to 700 feet south of the Bell Boulevard/Buttercup Creek Boulevard intersection. This project would require the acquisition of additional right of way.
