Shoal Creek Boulevard at Woodview Avenue
Crews began construction at Shoal Creek Boulevard and Woodview Avenue on July 29. The slip lane will permanently close to motor vehicle traffic and a new rain garden will be built in this area with a sidewalk bridge over the rain garden.
Shoal Creek Boulevard at 38th Street
Construction is largely complete at Shoal Creek Boulevard and 38th Street. Final signage and striping will be installed in August.
Thank you for your continued patience during construction! Construction is weather-dependent and the schedule is subject to change.

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.
December 2018 Listening Session
Austin Transportation hosted a community listening session on December 12 at Gullett Elementary School.
A public comment period was open from December 12, 2018 through January 13, 2019.
March 2019 Open Houses
The project team used input collected from the community to develop a number of alternatives for community review. Open houses were held in March to share these alternatives with the community and collect feedback.
A survey was available at the open houses and online from March 26 through April 30.
