This project includes an extension of Rolling Hills Drive into the Fiesta Square Shopping Center, a direct connection from Appleby Road to Rolling Hills, and an extension of Plainview Drive south into the Fiesta Square Shopping Center. These streets will all intersect at a roundabout on the east side of the shopping center.
Why is It Important?
The 71B Corridor study identified traffic congestion between Rolling Hills and Joyce Blvd. as a major concern. This connection will provide an alternate route for traffic moving between Rolling Hills Drive and Millsap and will provide for better east-west and north/south connections in the area.
What is the Current Status?
A contract for engineering design services was approved by the City Council on June 4, 2020. Design and traffic studies have begun.
When Will it be Completed?
The design is expected to be completed and the project bid for construction in September 2021. Construction could then begin around December of 2021 and completed by the end of 2022.
How is it Funded?
Funding will come from the allocation for the 71B Corridor in the 2019 Bond Program
