As part of ongoing work to improve the intersection of Pecan Street and FM 685/Dessau Road in Pflugerville, crews will be paving portions of the area overnight on Nov. 29, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

The work will cause rotating lane closures and intermittent full closures of the roadway, and city staff recommend motorists take advantage of alternative routes during this phase of the project.


To bypass the closures, city staff recommend use of SH 130, Pflugerville Parkway, Immanuel Road, North Railroad Avenue, South Heatherwilde Boulevard, FM 685, Pfennig Lane and East Wells Branch Parkway as destinations warrant.

City information states there will be no change to the existing traffic patterns during the day, and the intersection improvement project is still anticipated for a mid-December completion.

The total cost of the intersection improvement is $4.3 million, with $2.3 million coming from a U.S. Department of Commerce grant. City information states the remainder of the funding is coming from the Texas Department of Transportation, the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation and the city of Pflugerville via certificates of obligation bonds and its general fund.
