First phase of New Hope Drive extension underway


Corrected Feb. 6 at 10:16 a.m. to update the map. Previously, the map incorrectly stated that Cottonwood Creek Trail was located west of Toll 183A.

Posted Jan. 29 at noon.

East New Hope Drive in Cedar Park is in the process of being extended from Cottonwood Creek Trail to Ronald Reagan Boulevard, with construction expected to last until August with a cost of $7,829,323.40 funded by 2015 general obligation bonds. New Hope will also be extended from Ronald Reagan to Sam Bass Road, with design for that portion of the project scheduled to be complete in April 2019. Design and right of way acquisition for the second portion costs $5 million, funded by 2015 general obligation bonds.

Timeline: August 2017-August 2018 (construction for Cottonwood Creek to Ronald Reagan), October 2017-April 2019 (design for Ronald Reagan to Sam Bass)

  1. Just a heads up, the map is incorrect. Cottonwood Creek Trail is East of 183A, in between 183A and Ronald Regan.

    • Thank you, Ryan and Chris! We have run a correction and updated the map. I appreciate the notice and strive to make sure everything is accurate!
