Appleby/Plainview/Rolling Hills Connection

Map showing location of Appleby Rolling Hills improvements

What is this project?

This project includes an extension of Rolling Hills Drive into the Fiesta Square Shopping Center, a direct connection from Appleby Road to Rolling Hills, and an extension of Plainview Drive south into the Fiesta Square Shopping Center.  These streets will all intersect at a roundabout on the east side of the shopping center.

Why is It Important?

The 71B Corridor study identified traffic congestion between Rolling Hills and Joyce Blvd. as a major concern. This connection will provide an alternate route for traffic moving between Rolling Hills Drive and Millsap and will provide for better east-west and north/south connections in the area.

What is the Current Status?

Updated 6/10/2021

A contract for engineering design services was approved by the City Council on June 4, 2020. Garver and City Staff are currently working with the owners of the Fiesta Square shopping center to determine the best alignment of the roadway through the site. Once the alignment is finalized, the design will resume.
