JD is an amazing realtor.

Most people can agree that buying your first home is an inherently stressful experience. There’s so many new questions and concerns that you as a buyer have to contend with… What I loved about working with JD, and why he is the only realtor that I’ll ever use, is his ability to take the stress out of those situations. He listens, he follows up, and he takes care of what’s most important to you.

Major Arterial Improvements – Buda – Kyle


FM 1626 –  3.3 miles from FM 967 down to FM 2770 is set to be widened to a four lane divided highway with a continuous turn lane.  The cost is expected to be $22 million.  Construction is set to begin by June 2016.

State Hwy 45 Southwest – (Connection from FM 1626 to the south end of the MoPac Expressway)  The Travis County Commissioners have voted to reinstate this project. The process for refining the final design for the project is now under way. All necessary right-of-way has been purchased.

  • The cost for this road will be about $100 million. Travis County has contributed $15 million and Hays County has contributed $5 million for the design of the road with left over funds going to construction. All funding for this project is now in place.
  • On March 5, 2015 the Texas Department of Transportation issued a Record of Decision which allowed SH 45 SW to proceed to final design and construction.  Rodriguez Transportation Group has been hired to develop final construction plans, details and specifications.
  • TxDOT is advertising a RFQ to be able to hire an Independent Environmental Compliance Management Company
  • Estimated Start of Construction December 2016

Once this road is completed it will allow for much easier east – west traffic between Buda – Kyle and the Dripping Springs part of Hays County.  It will also give Buda and Kyle area residents a third commuting way into Austin.  The first two being IH 35 and SH 130 toll.
