This project proposes to extend East Braker Lane from its current endpoint at Dawes Place approximately 0.75 miles to Samsung Boulevard. This new roadway would connect to a future Travis County project extending East Braker Lane from Samsung Boulevard to Harris Branch Parkway and future Safe Routes to School improvements to Taebaek Drive. Once complete, the project is expected to reduce congestion on East Parmer Lane. The project is in alignment with the Austin Strategic Mobility Plan, a comprehensive, citywide transportation plan adopted in 2019.

The City of Austin and Travis County both identified the extension of East Braker Lane as a priority project to improve the regional street network. This project led by the Austin Transportation Department and Travis County’s project further east would, in tandem, improve mobility in the area and accommodate future growth. This project would use both City of Austin and State of Texas funds and is part of the 2045 Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) Regional Roadway System plan.
