City proposes East Braker extension

Wednesday, August 18, 2021 by Tai Moses

Residents who live or work near East Braker Lane may have received notice from the Austin Transportation Department about a proposal to extend East Braker from where it currently ends at Dawes Place about three-quarters of a mile to Samsung Boulevard. The new roadway would reduce congestion on East Parmer Lane and “connect to a future Travis County project extending East Braker Lane further east to Harris Branch Parkway, as well as planned Safe Routes to School improvements to Taebaek Drive.” An environmental study is currently being conducted and a public hearing on the project will be held later this year.
