|TxDOT to Host Open House on Realignment of US 183 / Bell Boulevard - Wednesday, February 20, 2019|
The proposed realignment of US 183 (Bell Boulevard) from Cedar Park Drive to Buttercup Creek Boulevard will be the topic of discussion at an open house and public hearing hosted by the Texas Department of Transportation and the City of Cedar Park on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019. Displays will be available for viewing at 5 p.m. with the formal hearing starting at 6 p.m. The meeting will take place in the community rooms at the Cedar Park Recreation Center at 1435 Main Street in Cedar Park.
The purpose of the proposed Bell Boulevard realignment project is to improve public safety and accessibility for vehicles and pedestrians. The proposed project would:
• Move current Bell Boulevard traffic to Old Highway 183
• Widen Old Highway 183 from two to four lanes (two in each direction) with a raised center median and center-turn lanes at intersections
• Add right-turn lanes at intersections
• Construct an 8- to 10-foot shared-used path
• Provide safety lighting and landscaping
The open house and public hearing will allow citizens the opportunity to review and comment on the proposed realignment. Displays will be available and staff will be present to answer questions.

|Temporary Right Lane Closure on SH 29 - Friday, February 15, 2019|
Williamson County’s contractor, Cox Commercial, will conduct a temporary lane closure of the right lane on westbound SH 29 at the intersection of SH 29 and CR 200. The temporary lane closure will be in place weekdays only starting Wednesday, February 20, thru Friday, March 1, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The closed lane will be used as a safety buffer for the demo of concrete rip rap, concrete driveways, and the installation of the new concrete box drainage structure (Culvert 1) that runs parallel to SH 29. This is weather pending, and no lane closure will be set in wet conditions. Minimal disruption to traffic is expected. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes our customers.
