RM 2243 (Hero Way)
Location From US 183A to Southwest Bypass
Description   The proposed project would reconstruct and widen the existing rural two-lane roadway to a controlled-access highway which includes two mainlanes in each direction separated by a concrete barrier, with direct connections to 183A, Ronald Reagan Boulevard and Southwest Bypass. The proposed project will also include three-lane frontage roads with access ramps on either side of the mainlanes. The first phase of construction will include a single frontage road from 183A to Garey Park, which follows Hero Way from 183A to Ronald Reagan Boulevard and is on a new alignment from Ronald Reagan Boulevard to Garey Park. This single frontage road would serve two-way traffic until the other frontage road is built in a future phase. Additional phases of the project would be developed as growth warrants and funding becomes available. 

The RM 2243 project would alleviate congestion, provide safety improvements, and help plan for the future of the region. Mobility and safety improvements for this project include adding lanes to increase capacity, realigning and straightening curves along the roadway, and improving accommodations for pedestrians and cyclists. This project is a part of the County’s Long-Range Transportation Plan and is being funded through the voter-approved 2019 Road Bond.

The County has contracted BGE, Inc. to work on the RM 2243 project. Study and preliminary design are underway and are expected to be complete in spring 2023. Phase one of construction is expected to begin in summer 2024.
