AUSTIN, TX — The Texas Department of Transportation was joined by federal, state, and local officials to break ground on the Loop 360 at Westlake Drive/Cedar Street project.

"This is the first project in the Loop 360 Program to move into construction," said TxDOT Austin District Engineer Tucker Ferguson. "By removing traffic signals and constructing underpasses at Westlake Drive and Cedar Street, this project will provide much-needed relief to a busy and growing area of the community."

In addition, the project will include non-signalized U-turns at Westlake Drive, construct frontage roads, and add shared-use paths along the corridor.

"We've been working with TxDOT all these years to come up with a plan. What's being started here today is going to make things better," said State Representative Donna Howard. "It's taking into account both safety and mobility. Thank you to TxDOT for what you've been doing."

"This is a project that people are going to feel. This is a project that people are going to see," said Austin Mayor Steve Adler. "This is the golden age of mobility in this city, and I'm just really proud to be part of it."

The $72.1-million project is funded by TxDOT and the City of Austin's 2016 Mobility Bond. The project is anticipated to be complete in mid-2025, weather permitting. The project contractor is COPASA, Inc. The Loop 360 at Westlake Drive/Cedar Street project is one of several planned along this corridor.
