Improvements are in the works for Pflugerville's Pfluger Farm Lane North and East Pflugerville Parkway projects following Pflugerville City Council approval of two engineering contracts Jan. 12.

The East Pflugerville Parkway extension project will extend the roadway east of Weiss Lane to run along Jesse Bohls Drive. Improvements include a four-lane urban roadway with enhancements for curbs, gutters, sidewalks, storm sewers and street lights.

The extension project was approved in the city's November 2018 bond election. City Council approved a $355,000 contract with LJA Engineering Inc. on Jan. 12 for professional engineering services affiliated with the project.

Council also approved a nearly $350,000 contract with Kimley-Horn for professional engineering services for the Pfluger Farm Lane North project. The Pflugerville Master Transportation Plan identified Pfluger Farm Lane as a key project, with a planned extension from Pfennig Lane north to Wilke Lane or to the SH 45 frontage road. An additional portion between Pflugerville Parkway and Town Center Drive has been built, per city documents.

City Council approved the issuance of certificates of obligation in 2018 to speed up the design process for the roadway improvements. The Pfluger Farm Lane North project was included in the November 2020 bond election and was approved by city voters.
