The limits of design for Mager Lane improvements are from FM 1660 to the east City Limits of Hutto. With current and projected land use being predominantly mid-density residential and commercial, this two-lane rural roadway needed to be upgraded to provide for future growth and traffic demands. Additionally, because Mager is a key school route to Hutto Elementary from Clark’s Crossing, Carol Meadows and other nearby subdivisions, this section of roadway was identified as the number one priority in Hutto’s Pedestrian Mobility Plan. Prior to beginning construction documents for this three-lane urban facility, a project schematic was developed to ensure all design thoughts and elements were in sync with the City’s and the school’s needs and criteria and accommodated local property access requirements. The project was presented in a public
forum before continuing to the plan preparation stage.
