RM 2243 (Hero Way)
Location From US 183A to Southwest Bypass
Description The proposed project is a controlled-access roadway, which includes two mainlanes in each direction separated by a concrete barrier, with direct connections to 183A, Ronald Reagan Boulevard and Southwest Bypass. The roadway will also include two three-lane frontage roads with access ramps on either side of the mainlanes. The first phase of construction is anticipated to include a single frontage road, which would serve two-way traffic until the other frontage road is built in a future phase. Limits of the first phase of construction will be dependent on funding.

The RM 2243 project would alleviate congestion, provide safety improvements, and help plan for the future of the region. Mobility and safety improvements for this project include adding lanes to increase capacity, realigning and straightening curves along the roadway, and improving accommodations for pedestrians and cyclists. This project is a part of the County’s Long-Range Transportation Plan and is being funded through the voter-approved 2019 Road Bond.

The County has contracted BGE, Inc. to work on the RM 2243 project. Study and preliminary design are underway and are expected to be complete in spring 2023. Phase one of construction is expected to begin in early 2024.
