Upcoming Events

TxDOT US 281 Blanco County Project VIRTUAL Public Meeting

Begins: 9/29/2022 - 5:00 PM
Ends: 10/14/2022 - 11:59 PM

To attend the meeting, visit, and keyword search “US 281 Blanco County” or click here.

"TxDOT is developing preliminary plans to improve 19 miles of US 281 from US 290 to the Comal County line in Blanco County, Texas, including the US 281/US 290 interchange. This study excludes any improvements to the existing four-lane segment of US 281 through the city of Blanco and excludes the study of a relief route around the city of Blanco, which is being studied as part of a separate project. The purpose of the proposed project is to enhance safety, improve connectivity and improve mobility by providing additional roadway capacity to meet current and future traffic demands due to population growth and increased traffic volumes. Throughout the project limits, the existing roadway is two-lanes with Super-2 passing lanes. Current study limits contain the last section of two- lane US 281 roadway within the Austin District. The preliminary plans would expand the roadway to a four-lane divided highway similar to the adjacent section of US 281 to the south. This is consistent with TxDOT’s statewide plan to upgrade rural highways to four-lane divided roadways as part of the Texas Trunk System and consistent with the recommendations from a previously conducted statewide US 281 feasibility study."
