Project Summary (map)
Raider Way and E. Woodview Drive will be widened to a three-lane road with curb, gutter, storm sewers, street lighting, water quality facilities, detention facilities, sidewalks, crosswalks, and bicycle lanes. Improvements extend north on Raider Way from Crystal Falls Parkway to Woodview Drive and west on Woodview Drive from Raider Way to Toll 183A access road (4,620 linear feet).
The project also includes traffic signal modifications at the Crystal Falls Parkway/Raider Way intersection, and other improvements to the Raider Way/Woodview Drive intersection. Significant rights-of-way land acquisitions are required.
Completion of this project should improve traffic safety and continuous vehicle flow at Wiley Middle School and Rouse High School during school-related activities.
08/16/2023 — City contractors have started work on roadway improvements to Raider Way and Woodview Drive in Leander, which may take up to two years to complete. Although lane closures are anticipated as part of the project's first phase, two-way vehicle traffic will remain open on Raider Way through the Fall 2023-Spring 2024 school year to minimize disruption to school activities.

07/21/2023 — City officials will hold a pre-construction meeting with Chasco Constructors on July 25. Construction will begin in two weeks with removing trees along the west side of Raider Way and the anticipated excavation of the detention pond in front of Wiley Middle School. As the city presented in the Spring, the west half of Raider Way will be closed in mid-August before school starts. Raider Way will become a single lane, northbound only, one-way road, until we complete the west half of Raider Way improvements in March 2024. Traffic will enter from Crystal Falls and exit off Woodview Drive onto the 183A feeder road.
