SH 130 from SH 45 to SH 71
TxDOT's Austin District proposes to widen State Highway 130 to include additional travel lanes and auxiliary lanes. The proposed project is located on SH 130 and extends from SH 45 North to SH 71 for a total project length of approximately 22 miles.
The existing SH 130 roadway consists of two to three 12-foot-wide lanes in each direction, with 12-footwide outside shoulders and 6-foot-wide inside shoulders. Directions of travel are separated by a depressed grassy median, usually 135 feet in width.
The proposed project proposed improvements include:
- Adding a mainlane in each direction
- Adding auxiliary lanes between ramps where warranted
- Widening bridges and culverts
- Crossover improvements
When completed, the mainlanes of the SH 130 roadway would consist of three to five 12-foot-wide lanes in each direction, with 12-foot-wide outside shoulders and 10- to 12-foot-wide inside shoulders.
The proposed improvements would be constructed within the existing right of way; therefore, no new right of way would be required. No displacements are anticipated.
The purpose of the open houses and public hearings is to share project information and updates, present proposed schematics of the proposed project and alternatives, and collect input from the community. TxDOT is committed to working closely with the community on this project. All input will be considered as TxDOT moves forward in developing a plan that will enhance the safety of this corridor while preparing for future growth.
