What's happening now?
We've built the planned intersection and bikeway installation work on Shoal Creek Boulevard.
Thank you to everyone who lives and travels along Shoal Creek Boulevard for your continued interest and patience during construction over the last year.
We put the construction of three additional rain gardens with minor intersection modifications and the underpass at Shoal Creek Boulevard/RM 2222 on hold until 2021. We are still coordinating with Austin Watershed Protection on the three rain garden designs at Great Oaks Parkway, Twin Oaks Drive, and Greenlawn Parkway. We made this decision in response to other high-priority infrastructure work around the city.
Additional information about the underpass will be shared by email as a groundbreaking date approaches. Click here to sign up for email updates!

In late 2018, Austin Transportation began a Shoal Creek Boulevard community conversation in advance of regularly planned street maintenance. When roads are resurfaced as part of regular street maintenance, the existing street lines are covered, providing a “blank slate” to reconfigure the street if there is an opportunity to provide a safer, more accessible street design for all road users.
The public process for this project included one listening session, three open houses, and two public comment periods. As part of the second comment period, a range of alternatives were presented for community review. The selected alternatives were advanced after consideration of all community input, engineering and project constraints, adopted City policies, and opportunities for improvement along Shoal Creek Boulevard.
Funding for this project is available from the 2016 Mobility Bond.
