Project Summary:  Final design of the project is complete and construction of the project will occur from June 2013 and be completed in late 2014.   The contract for construction was awarded to Lawrence Construction Company based of providing the "best value" for the City and PPRTA through a Request for Proposal process.  Please go to the project website below for up to date information on the project.

Project Description: This project will design and construct improvements to widen Austin Bluffs Parkway from Nevada Avenue to Ruby/Old Farm Drive.  Construction done under previous projects along the corridor will be utilized, as much as possible, to end up with a consistent six lane arterial corridor within the project limits. Specifically, improvements at Austin Bluffs/ Nevada, Austin Bluffs/Academy, and Austin Bluffs/Old Farm will be incorporated into the project improvements.

The objectives of this project include:

  • Improved east-west mobility per the East-West Mobility Study
  • Reduce accidents and congestion at signalized intersections
  • Enhance roadway capacity and safety
  • Adhere to the City's "complete streets" concept along the corridor
