1. Austin Avenue bridges project
Georgetown public works officials hosted an open house Feb. 27 to get public input on railing designs as part of the Austin Avenue bridges project. City Council voted in October 2018 to move forward with a plan to rehabilitate the bridges and add a new pedestrian span at a total cost of $7 million-$10 million. (Estimated timeline: To be determined)
2. Rivery Boulevard extension
Crews have begun installing pavement base material and utility-related components in a $5.1 million Rivery Boulevard extension northward between Williams Drive and Northwest Boulevard. (Estimated timeline: August 2018-summer)
3. Southwest Bypass
A $19.8 million Williamson County-funded project is adding a south segment to the Southwest Bypass to connect Leander Road with the I-35 frontage road to the south. (Estimated timeline: September 2019-late 2019)
4. Austin Avenue intersections
Work to repair curbs and add crosswalks at the intersections of 4A Austin Avenue and 11th Street and 4B Austin and 10th Street, along with nearby waterline and crosswalk installations, will cause lane closures on Austin between Eighth and 12th streets. Drivers should also expect additional lane closures on 10th and 11th streets between Rock and Main streets.
