Is it ever going to happen? To me, this would be the least expensive option to alleviate the current traffic mess until 281 can be made into a freeway N of 1604. Obviously 281 is a parking lot at times, and Stone Oak Parkway is almost as bad. Even Blanco traffic is starting to become nightmarish, ironically made worse by the new 281/1604 interchange and other factors.

Last time this was raised, it was pointed out that the land for the road extension is still privately owned and being used for ranching. Texas isn't big on playing the eminent domain card, so it's up to the land owner when they want to sell.

Actually the owner passed a few years ago and his heirs have visions of Hardy Oak being developed a lot like Stone Oak Parkway. They discussed their plans with the Stone Oak POA and several neighborhoods got involved. Residents wanted to make sure the area didn't have any more bars.
Then the economy tanked and the plans were put on hold.
The city doesn't build streets. They wait for the developer to build the streets.
Who knows when that will be.
I've seen the plans. Hopefully they will get resurrected.

Bars attract a lot of riff-raff & drunk drivers. Nothing wrong with riff-raff and girls with their thongs hanging out (I like 'em!) but many of the family-oriented residents may not want that. (Not sure why) Drunk drivers, no one wants them. The only time I'm driving drunk is when I'm playing Gran Turismo 5 hammered.

As for the traffic situation, I think that 281 has improved SO much that a Hardy Oak extension isn't quite all that necessary. I love the 281 situation now!

281 is still a parking lot going home though.

Default Latest news on Hardy Oak-Read this!

I emailed the District 9 and got a response that Hardy Oak Extension from Knights Cross to Stone Oak Parkway construction will begin November 2014 and is estimated to complete September 2015. I am sure many folks living near that area will be thrilled to finally see an extension being constructed soon.
