Work to design an extension of New Hope Drive connecting it from Ronald Reagan Blvd. to Sam Bass Road in Cedar Park is almost complete.

The new road will be four lanes, with a raised median, a shared use path and bike lanes, according to the city.

The project is excepted to cost $18.4 million, and will be funded from the city's 2015 bond. Construction is expected to begin this summer and last until late winter 2023.
