>>Northbound MoPac Exit north of Steck Ave to Permanently Close<<
The exit ramp located just north of Steck Avenue on northbound MoPac will permanently close after 10pm on Saturday August 27th so crews can complete work on a Steck Avenue bypass that will open in a couple of weeks. The bypass lane will replace the old ramp and allow drivers to skip the light at Steck Avenue as they head north on the northbound MoPac frontage road. (See attached graphic)

>>Southbound MoPac Exit to Duval Rd/Burnet Rd Closed All Weekend<<
The southbound exit to Duval/Burnet Road will close at 10pm on Friday August 26th to install drainage structures. The right lane of southbound MoPac and the left lane of the southbound MoPac frontage road will also be closed in the area between Parmer Lane and Duval Road. The far left hand turn lane from Parmer Lane onto the southbound frontage road will also be closed. All of these closures will end as soon as the work is done or no later than 5am on Monday morning August 29th.

>>Northbound 45th St Exit Closed Friday Night and Saturday Night<<
The northbound exit to 45th Street will be closed from 10pm to 6am the next morning on Friday night August 26th and Saturday night August 27th so crews can drill sound wall foundations along the ramp.

Some additional overnight lane closures are planned this weekend. A complete listing can be found at Additional closures planned for Sunday evening August 28th will be posted on Sunday afternoon.

Please Join us for Balcones District Park Community Input Meetings – Aug 13 or Aug 16


To view the below with graphics click here

About the Project:
Balcones Park has been awarded $200,000 in NPP & APF grants and an additional estimated $300,000 in city funds to make the following improvements to Balcones Park within the next two years.

  • Add shade to the pool
  • Install a pavilion
  • Install a new, larger playground

Due to the large scope of the projects and funding, the city requires a park concept plan with community input before implementing these improvements. We have been very fortunate to have 3 landscape designers, Neal Charles, Kim Gilbertson, and Kristy Street, willing to donate their time to create a concept plan for the park which allows the project to move forward full-steam ahead after we acquire solid feedback from stakeholders, like yourselves.

Community Input:
Community input is imperative in this process! We need your ideas! Please come participate, share your ideas, and help shape our wonderful park. Your input is necessary for creating a long-term vision for our park as well as for solidifying the details of the three large improvements listed above.

Upcoming Input Meeting Dates:

Saturday***, August 13th at 9:30am at Milwood Baptist Church – RSVP now
Tuesday, August 16th at 7:30pm at Milwood Baptist Church – RSVP now

*** Supervised play will be available for children over the age of three at the church’s gated playground for the August 13th meeting. Children are welcome at the meeting as well. Please RSVP above if you plan to have a child attend that needs supervision so we can be certain we can accommodate you.

If you can’t make either of the face-to-face meetings, you can send your input through an online survey, which will be posted shortly. Stay tuned for survey information or send us an email to make sure you are on the email list to receive the survey.

For More Information or to RSVP:
