City will break ground on Burnet Road corridor mobility work early next year
The northern portion of the Burnet Road corridor project approved in the city of Austin’s 2016 mobility bond is moving forward after receiving clearances from the state.
The Texas Department of Transportation approved environmental clearances for the project along Burnet, according to an Oct. 27 news release from the city of Austin’s Corridor Program Office. The green light from TxDOT now allows the city to begin work on the project.
Improvements along Burnet will run from the road’s intersection with US 183 to the MoPac frontage road north of The Domain. The planned improvements include pedestrian and bicyclist improvements that address safety and mobility needs, according to the corridor program office’s news release. This work will break ground in early 2021 and is scheduled to be complete within four months and ahead of the Austin FC stadium opening.
Further drainage and roadway construction on the Burnet corridor will begin following the pedestrian and cyclist improvements. The corridor program office states that work could begin in 2022.
