2023 Transportation town hall
The regional 2023 Transportation Town Hall took place on Thursday, June 22 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Lakeway Activity Center. The City of Lakeway was joined by leaders and members of the City of Bee Cave, the Village of the Hills, State of Texas, Texas Department of Transportation and Lake Travis ISD. There was an introduction by Mayor Kilgore, along with presentations by Lakeway City Manager Joseph Molis and Bee Cave City Manager Clint Garza. Following the presentations, members of the community were able to visit different stations set up by the various agencies to answer questions on a variety of transportation-focused material including the future expansion of RR 620, traffic and collision data, and various road improvement projects. We thank those in the community who attended this event!

2022 Transportation Bond Election
In August 2022, Lakeway City Council approved (6-1) a transportation bond election, which was held on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022 in the amount not to exceed $17,500,000. This bond election was approved by Lakeway voters (see link to results above). The funds will be used “for the purpose of designing, acquiring, constructing, renovating, improving, upgrading, updating, and equipping streets, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, pathways, bike and pedestrian system improvements, demolition, repair, and rebuilding of existing streets and other transportation facilities.”
Over the course of several months in 2022, Lakeway City Council discussed possible transportation projects to be added as part of a list for improvements to the Lakeway transportation system. A City Manager Town Hall focusing on these possible transportation projects was also held in April 2022 at the Lakeway Activity Center. The City of Lakeway received numerous comments from City Council meetings and the town hall based on the possible list of projects, which has since been revised. The current list includes 11 expected projects, with items relating to right-of-way acquisition for the future widening of RM 620, traffic signalizations, culvert improvements, sidewalk construction, road construction projects and road resurfacing work. As a background, Lohmans Crossing Road, Lakeway Boulevard and Lakeway Drive are all showing signs of cracking due to increased traffic and the 2021 winter storm, along with reaching their projected lifecycle when maintenance work is typically recommended by engineers.
The list below includes the 11 expected projects as part of the $17.5 million bond proposition.
