ferguson lane expansion
This project required both a roadway extension and widening of a two lane roadway section to full four lane urban roadway, including water quality features.
Ferguson Lane was designated in the CAMPO plan as a Priority Arterial Project for northeast Travis County. Travis County retained the services of MWM DesignGroup to plan and design the reconstruction and widening of Ferguson Lane and the construction of the new Tuscany Way North connector road between the improved Ferguson Lane and the existing Tuscany Way. The Ferguson Lane reconstruction project was approximately 2,650 linear feet between the existing intersections with Wall Street and Sprinkle Road, partly within Travis County and partly within the City of Austin’s ETJ. Ferguson Lane was designed as a two-lane roadway with a continuous turning lane. The Tuscany Way North connector consisted of approximately 1,950 linear feet of new roadway between Ferguson Lane and Exchange Drive within the full purpose jurisdiction of the City of Austin. The roadway design for Ferguson Lane consisted of roadway widening, pavement reconstruction, striping, signage and ADA improvements. The roadway design for the Tuscany Way South extension consisted of HMAC pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalks and ramps, striping and signage.
Travis County later contracted with MWM to plan and design the Tuscany Way South Improvements, from US 290 to Springdale Road. The Tuscany Way Extension project was approximately 2,650 linear feet between the existing intersections with US 290 and Springdale Road within northeast Travis County. The project is partially within the City of Austin’s full purpose jurisdiction. Tuscany Way was designed as an industrial boulevard with sufficient width to be converted to a MAD-4 in the future.
