Design work could soon begin on a project bringing several major upgrades to CR 132 in Hutto.

Known as the Hutto Arterial Project, the project would expand the section of CR 132 between Limmer Loop and CR 199 into a six-lane roadway with three lanes in each direction. It would also add an overpass on CR 132 passing over Hwy. 79.

At a March 23 meeting, Hutto City Council will consider a $927,920.96 contract for engineering and design work on the project with Garver LLC.

The section of CR 132 in question is adjacent to two major sites of development: the Cottonwood Properties and the Megasite.

An estimated cost and completion date will not be available until further along in the design process.
