City officials hope the opening of Pfluger Farm Lane March 31 will help ease traffic congestion and provide easier access to Stone Hill Town Center.

The two-lane roadway is a north to south connector for Pflugerville Parkway to Town Center Drive, and the final project features include a bridge, center turn lane, a 10-foot multi-use path, utility improvements and street lighting.

The roadway extension is expected to accommodate up to 15,000 vehicles per day.

In a statement issued by the city, “The Pfluger Farm Lane roadway is built to handle an additional 3,000 vehicles per day and will help provide additional roadway options and connectivity into the shopping center,” said Assistant City Manager Tom Word in a release issued by the city. “Not only does this roadway connect Pflugerville Parkway to the shopping center, but traffic impact studies indicate the project will help alleviate traffic that has become congested at the FM 685 and Town Center Drive intersection.”

Pflugerville funded the $4 million project with 2013 and 2015 Combination Tax & Revenue Certificates of Obligation.
