FM 734, more commonly known as Parmer Lane, is a heavily traveled roadway, serving as a major thoroughfare between RM 1431 and SH 45. The puropse of the proposed expansion project is to reduce congestion and improve mobility by providing additional roadway capacity to meet future traffic demands from population growth and increased traffic volumes.
The Texas Department of Transportation Austin District is proposing these improvements to a 4.4-mile segment of Parmer Lane in northwest Austin and Cedar Park.
The proposed project would:
1. Expand Parmer Lane from four travel lanes to six travel lanes, three in each direction within the existing right of way.
2. Improve intersections with additional turn lanes, where necessary.
3. In cooperation with the city of Austin, improve water quality for stormwater runoff.
4. Provide sidewalks throughout the corridor and a dedicated bicycle/pedestrian path connecting Parmer Lane to the Brushy Creek Regional Trai.
