The project constructed four lanes from Cottonwood Creek Trail to Ronald Reagan Boulevard. The city of Cedar Park and Williamson County hosted a ribbon cutting to commemorate the project’s completion June 25.
The extension allows for additional capacity for east-west traffic through Cedar Park, according to a press release from the city of Cedar Park. Cedar Park Mayor Corbin Van Arsdale said the project also provides better access to La Jaita and Arrow Point business parks.
"[The project] makes it easier to get around here," Van Arsdale said. "It has gotten pretty crowded on our arterials."
Construction began in summer 2017 and had a budget of $9.4 million, funded by 2015 voter-approved bonds and savings from prior bond projects, according to the release. Williamson County contributed $1.3 million to the project.
The road is a four-lane major arterial, divided roadway with a raised median. Street lighting, a traffic signal at Ronald Reagan, an extension of Arrow Point Drive and a 10-foot-wide shared-use path were also included in the project, along with new water and wastewater lines.
