A project to connect Toll 183A in Leander to I-35 in Georgetown is now part of the Leander Transportation Plan.

Leander City Council unanimously amended the project into the city’s transportation plan at its April 16 meeting. The road project will connect Hero Way and RM 2243.

Leander Mayor Troy Hill said the connection to I-35 will make land along the road project "infinitely more valuable."

"You look at cities that have I-35 and what an advantage they have," Hill said. "This gives us easy connection to 35, which I think will open up so many possibilities."
