CEDAR PARK - The City of Cedar Park has broken ground on a $22 million project to transform FM 1431, also known as Whitestone Blvd.

The 16-month project will expand FM 1431 from four to six lanes between Parmer Lane and Sam Bass Rd., add turn lanes for side streets and rebuild the intersection of Whitestone Blvd. and Parmer Lane/Ronald Reagan Blvd.

The intersection will be converted into a partial continuous-flow intersection. When complete, drivers on Parmer and Reagan will be able to make traditional turns onto Whitestone, but drivers on Whitestone will wait at separate signals to bring them across to the road's left side before permitting them to turn onto Parmer or Reagan.

Cedar Park residents have become accustomed to traffic around the intersection, with more than 70,000 cars traveling FM 1431 each day.

"Not only is it an expansion of FM 1431 for commuting but also for economic development. Our hospital, shopping, entertainment are right on this road,” said Cedar Park Mayor Matt Powell.

TxDOT and Williamson County are also chipping in for the project.
