FM 1460 Traffic Switch to New Lanes
AUSTIN, TX The FM 1460 project in Williamson County is moving into its next phase of construction and introducing newly constructed lanes for drivers. This design modification will change the way motorists currently drive on FM 1460 between Quail Valley Drive and SE Inner Loop.
Traffic will be redirected to the new lanes just north of Quail Valley Drive to SE Inner Loop. Once through the SE Inner Loop intersection, traffic will travel on the newly constructed southbound mainlanes, merging back onto the existing FM 1460, just north of Westinghouse Drive. Once through the Westinghouse Drive intersection, traffic will be merged onto the new southbound mainlanes until University Drive.
During the next phase of construction, TxDOT crews will be constructing the new northbound FM 1460 mainlanes from SE Inner Loop to University Drive. Crews will also be constructing Westinghouse Drive, east of FM 1460. The project is expected to continue until spring 2018.
The $21 million project will convert approximately 3.5 miles of the existing two-lane roadway to a five-lane curb and gutter section from Quail Valley drive to SE Inner Loop and a four-lane divided highway from SE Inner Loop to University Boulevard. Once complete, this project will enhance safety and reduce congestion for motorists traveling through the area.
The contractor for the project is OHL USA Inc.
