Plutonic Panda:
Awesome! I hope it gets completed soon.

Long overdue project. Although I disagree with this statement in the article, "Hays County, in partnership with the city of Buda, is exploring the feasibility of the Gap Project before the area is substantially developed."

I don't know how they can claim the potential ROW area is substantially developed when, according to Google Earth imagery from April 2023, the actual path is still very much clear. I smell an anti-highway stance coming from the article writer.

The other thing that needs to be done, which will indeed be harder to build, is extending the SW end of TX-45 over to the US-290 corridor. If that leg was built the South portion of TX-45 could function as a Southern bypass for Austin.

They never claimed it is substantially developed, and the quote you use doesn’t claim it is either.


--- Quote ---Several large-scale residential and mixed-use developments are currently planned in this area between I-35 and RM 1626.

As more development plans progress, the SH 45 Gap Project becomes more challenging and impactful. Hays County, in partnership with the city of Buda, is exploring the feasibility of the Gap Project before the area is substantially developed.

Bold emphasis is my own.

Are those developments planned in the path of the highway? If so, it should be a scandal that neither TxDOT nor CTRMA bought the ROW.

TXtoNJ:
Everyone's misreading this. That area hadn't been built out because of local environmental interests. Now, the developers have enough clout to force them out, and they want SH 45 there.
