Construction is underway for the expansion of the Oak Hill Parkway, located in the Ridgeview neighborhood of Austin, Texas. The expansion includes the construction of additional frontage roads, which will provide improved access to the area and will also help reduce traffic congestion.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is leading the project, which is estimated to cost $1.2 billion and is expected to be completed in 2023. The project includes the construction of new bridges, sound walls, and pedestrian and bicycle paths. The project is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs and will improve safety and mobility in the area.

TxDOT is also working with local businesses and the City of Austin to ensure that the construction project is completed in a timely manner and with minimal disruption to the surrounding area. The project is expected to improve access to the area and will also provide improved access to the nearby Lake Travis-Westlake area.

The project is expected to have a positive impact on the local economy, with increased economic activity and improved access to the area. The project is also expected to reduce air pollution and provide improved access to public transportation.
