West Rundberg Lane
As part of the 2016 Mobility Bond, the City of Austin is updating design of improvements to an extension of West Rundberg Lane from Burnet Road to Metric Boulevard.
West Rundberg Lane is considered an arterial roadway. Arterial roadways are intended to carry higher amounts of traffic at a higher speed than neighborhood streets, and provide essential connections to the transportation network.
West Rundberg Lane Arterial Roadway
The City of Austin completed preliminary engineering and design of the West Rundberg extension using 2010 Mobility Bond Program funds. The funding allocated in the 2016 Mobility Bond is to advance the project further in the project development process.
The West Rundberg extension is a proposed roadway connection designated in the Austin Metropolitan Area Transportation Plan (AMATP) and the 2040 CAMPO RTP. The extension is also specifically called for in the North Burnet Gateway Master Plan as integral to the connectivity of the district for all modes of transportation.
For Burnet Road, current east-west connections are US Hwy 183 to the south and Braker Lane to the north. These intersections both currently function at a Level of Service (LOS) F. This project will provide an additional east-west connection between I-35 and Burnet Road and will serve as an alternative to these heavily congested intersections.
The West Rundberg extension was selected for funding through the CAMPO 2019-2022 Call for Projects, which will allow for full design and construction of the project.
Anticipated Project Timeline
The Corridor Mobility Team is currently updating design of the West Rundberg extension, which is funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond. There is not an estimated timeline for completion of design and construction at this time.
