District 6 and City Staff have held public meetings about Anderson Mill Road in March, 2017 and again in February, 2018 to complete the Northwest Austin Coalition community-led study and get the project ready for construction.
More updates will be posted to this page as the project evolves. You can also visit the City of Austin Project Page at http://www.austintexas.gov/AndersonMill.
City Staff are reviewing Anderson Mill Road between Spicewood Parkway and US 183 for opportunities to make safety and mobility improvements. District 6 is working with City Staff to ensure adjacent areas are also evaluated during this review process to help identify any additional safety and mobility improvement projects needed in the area.
Current Timeline and Where We’re At Now
City Staff have presented Preliminary Engineering drawings for community review. Preliminary Engineering includes evaluating existing conditions based on community input and transportation metrics such as vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle counts, speed, driveway analysis, crash pattern analysis, right-of-way width and availability, drainage, sidewalk condition, utilities, etc.
Preliminary Engineering – 2017 to 2018
Design and Permitting – 2018 to 2020 (includes right-of-way acquisition if needed)
Construction – 2020 to 2021 (includes utility relocation if needed)
District 6 is working with City Staff to accelerate this project so that construction can begin as soon as possible.
A True Grassroots Effort
This project started as a grassroots, community-led effort to address safety and mobility issues along Anderson Mill Road in northwest Austin. For more information about the community-led initiative, click here.
This grassroots effort was the driving force behind get $5.5 million allocated for improvements to Anderson Mill Road included to the 2016 Mobility Bond. The 2016 Mobility Bond, approved by voters in November 2016, included funding for preliminary engineering, design and construction of improvements on Anderson Mill Road. Currently, staff is moving forward with project development, starting with preliminary engineering. The effort will include community engagement, in addition to public input that has been received thus far, as well as review of constraints such as right-of-way and utilities, and coordination with the City’s adopted transportation plans and policies.
