Design selection delayed for Oak Hill Parkway project


A design selection for the Oak Hill Parkway project was delayed from mid-November to 2018 due to a need for more in-depth discussions about funding critical mobility improvements projects, according to the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. The project proposes to build a 12-lane highway to relieve traffic at the Y in Oak Hill, or the intersection of Hwy. 290 and Hwy. 71. Two proposed designs differ slightly in elevation and access. The Mobility Authority is also considering a no-build option.
Timeline: Environmental study began in 2012 and is ongoing. Construction is slated to begin in 2020 and will last four-to-five years.
Cost: TBD
Funding source: TBD

  1. I like Design A where 290 goes under but scrap frontage roads, only have on/off ramps. I’d scrap the green coloring too and have that natural concrete look like California. The look takes the focus away from the highway and more towards the nature around it as “extra” as that sounds..
